The Lee Honors College offers many cultural and social events designed to build community and expand horizons.

Honors students are required to attend four honors college sponsored events in their freshman year and two in their sophomore year. Honors students who joined as transfers or continuing WMU students are required to attend two honors college sponsored events in their first year in the college. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate in as many events as possible to enhance their educational experience.

Students receive credit for attending events by swiping their Bronco ID cards with a member of the honors college staff (in-person events) or providing full name and WIN as prompted (virtual events). Attendance credit is only awarded if a student stays for the duration of the event.

For questions about events, please contact honors college advisor, Katie Fox.

If you have any concerns, please contact the Lee Honors College at (269) 387-3230.
