Learn how you can thrive as an honors student at Western. 

Join us Friday, October 8 for an open house for future honors students*! The event begins at 9 a.m. ET. 

This event will introduce you to Western and the Lee Honors College (LHC) where you’ll experience our campus through the lens of an honors student. You’ll see how WMU can help you find your purpose, build community to thrive, and cultivate the skills to create a meaningful life.

Connect with current honors students to:

  • Attend a sample honors class lecture.
Learn about:
  • The benefits of being an honors student, such as honors-only courses and special events.
