Honors College Sponsored Events – Week of April 10

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.

The spring 2017 Mix-It-Up series continues Thurs., April 13 at 7 p.m. in the honors college lounge with “Improv Performance,” presented by Worklight Improv. Refreshments will be served.
