Hanging with Honors Opportunities

Considering Honors Contracts

Tuesday, November 17th | 5 - 6 pm | via Zoom
Presented by: Honors Staff + Students
A link to the recorded event is available for current honors students on the Hanging with Honors page in the University Honors Information Hub in Canvas.

Honors contracts are a creative and flexible way to transform a non-honors course into an honors experience. This is a way to not only earn Honors credits but also develop an individualized project that will enrich your experience. Join us virtually to learn more about planning honors contracts from honors staff and hear from your peers as they discuss their experiences.

Flyer for Hanging with Honors

Many students learn a white-washed version of this celebration, but what actually happened all those years ago? Join one of our favorite American Indian Studies professors, Robert Bell, in a discussion on the Native perspective of Thanksgiving. This event will give you plenty to talk about at your upcoming (safe) gatherings of family and friends.

If you were unable to attend, a recording of the event is available at this link.
