New this Week – Week of Oct. 24

Welcome to a brand new week, Broncos. We hope you were all successful with your recent mid-term exams and papers!

The end of October means it’s almost time for Halloween! Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Scholar Scare 5K and pumpkin carving events have been canceled…but don’t be spooked away because honors students are invited to join us for a Mix-It-Up Halloween Party Oct. 27 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the lounge. Wear your most creative costume and bring your Halloween spirit along with your phone for a selfie scavenger hunt and costume contest. We promise you it will be a howling good time with tons of treats and prizes!

Study in the States – New Summer 2017 Courses
Study in the States is a unique program in the Lee Honors College offering educational opportunities that will take place outside the classroom. Except for the cost of tuition, expenses will be paid by the honors college. All trip descriptions, including dates, will be included in the honors college summer I course catalog, with additional details available on the website. An informational presentation about the courses is planned for Mix-It-Up on Nov. 3 when instructors will be present to answer your questions. Apply here for 2017 Study in the States courses. Deadline for applying is Nov. 14 at 5 p.m. Selected participants will be notified no later than Dec. 9.

Metropolitan Series – Chicago Bus Trip The Lee Honors College continues its tradition of an annual bus trip to Chicago this year through the Metropolitan Series! On Nov. 5, students will have a chance to explore Shedd Aquarium, do some shopping downtown and enjoy a day in the city of Chicago. Complete the registration form and drop it off at the honors college front desk. We are pleased to announce that this bus trip will be offered at no cost to students.

The Lee Honors College sponsors four trips throughout the Midwest, which include but are not limited to: Detroit, Chicago, Ann Arbor and Grand Rapids. The 2016-17 year will feature trips to the Detroit Zoo, Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, the Arab-American Museum in Dearborn and another trip that is still in the planning stages! Our Metropolitan Series focuses on providing honors students with a chance to get to know each other better while also encouraging cultural engagement. These trips are provided to students at little to no cost, and information on registering for each trip will be made available one month in advance. We look forward to seeing you!
