Move-in day starts at 8:00 AM on the Thursday before classes start each year. We welcome new students to the Honors Program with a Convocation starting at 4. At convocation, we will introduce peer mentors and Honors faculty. Students will then attend a picnic dinner with their peer mentor that evening.
During dinner, students sign a column as a symbol of their commitment to the Honors Program's Four Columns. The head and foot caps of the column are signed by the peer mentors, as a symbol of their support for the students' efforts. These columns stand in the Honors Program office while the students are enrolled, and are present at the Medallion ceremony when they graduate.
