Freshman Kickoff is an all day event, 9a - 3p, designed to introduce you to your peers and to acquaint your with the Honors faculty and staff.
We'll meet in Ingalls Mall for breakfast - look for the Welcome Honors banner - and move into Hill Auditorium for remarks on the Honors Summer Book, Men We Reaped, by keynote speakers. Following discussion groups, the entire class will gather back under the tent for lunch. Honors RAs and Peers will introduce the afternoon's activities, which involve getting to know campus and points of interest around town.
While we do understand that some students have band and other field commitments, this is intended for the entire class and all others are expected to attend. Housing note: we are also aware that some students received Friday move-in times from M Housing. Additional times will open over the summer - you can check back on these throughout the month of August. If your move-in time remains on Friday, you should plan to join us as soon as you moved into your space. You'll have time over the weekend to get your room settled.
