Honors Kickoff

Honors Kickoff is the last Friday before classes begin for Fall semester. We begin the day in Hill Auditorium with welcoming remarks, speakers who address the theme of Digital Citizenship (and Digital Wolverines), and group discussions. Additional details may be found on the Events area of the website closer to the date.

After lunch under the tent on Ingalls Mall, we turn the program over to the Honors Peer Mentors and Resident Advisors. During the afternoon, a scavenger hunt is planned to introduce you to well-known and not so well-known campus spots, culminating with a gelato truck by Burton Tower, as we tabulate the winners.

Scheduling conflict note: We understand that certain students must attend U-M band rehearsal, while others may have departmental conflicts. You may join us for any portion of the day. You will receive Kickoff information in our newsletter, This Week in Honors, which will include an itinerary so that you can join us following your commitment.
