This requirement is intended to encourage students to explore the rich cultural events available on this campus as an enhancement of their educational experience. To this end, the honors college requires that all freshmen attend at least four Lee Honors College-sponsored events during their first year and two in their sophomore year. Transfer students are required to attend two Lee Honors College-sponsored events during their first year as an honors student. Any non-transfer student who fails to attend and present a Bronco ID at four sponsored events by the end of their first year will not be in good standing with the honors college. Failure to attend and present a Bronco ID at the required number of honors college sponsored events by the end of the second year will result in dismissal from the Lee Honors College. Mark your calendars and plan to attend as many of these as possible!

Stop Telling Women to Smile is a street art project that addresses gender based street harassment. The project consists of a series of portraits of women who have talked about their experiences with harassment. The portraits are designed into posters, including text that is inspired by the subject’s experiences. Street harassment is a serious issue that affects women worldwide. This project takes women’s voices, and faces, and puts them in the street—creating a bold presence for women in an environment where they are so often made to feel uncomfortable and unsafe.
