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. Students receive credit for attending events by swiping their Bronco Cards with a member of the honors college staff, and remaining for the duration of the program. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate in as many events as possible to enhance their educational experience at the Lee Honors College.

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

For all virtual events, please remember to provide your name and WIN to the event host in order to receive sponsored event credit!
