Honors Colloquium

UT Tyler Honors College

[From Latin: com+loqui: "To talk together."]

"Colloquium" is Latin for dialogue or conversation. The Honors Colloquium began as an opportunity for students to meet and talk with local, regional, and national leaders and scholars about topics that relate to the semester's courses. In the years since, we have expanded our event offerings to include 3 Colloquia each semester, and around a dozen Symposia each semester. Honors College students attend events each semester to earn honors points in order to remain in good standing. 

Colloquia events are large scale events and worth 7 honors points each. We spend more time and money on these events, and we encourage all 200+ honors students to attend every Colloquium. Our Symposia are smaller scale and usually more focused on a specific major or area of interest. These events are each worth 4 honors points.
