Honors College Sponsored Events – Week of Dec. 5

The Lee Honors College offers many cultural and social events designed to build community and expand horizons. Honors students are required to attend four honors college sponsored events in their freshman year and two in their sophomore year. Students receive credit for attending by swiping their Bronco Cards with a member of the honors college staff, and remaining for the duration of the program. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate in as many events as possible to enhance their educational experience at the Lee Honors College.

Bronco Buddies is a pen pal program in which honors students partner with Indiana-area elementary school children to provide mentoring and information about college. Mentees exchange emails, participate in Skype sessions with the class and meet their buddies  during the much-anticipated (optional) yearly visit. Interested in becoming a Bronco Buddy? Contact our graduate assistant at honr-grad@wmich.edu for more information and to sign up.
