There is a jar of cookies and a big bowl of candy in the 荣誉计划 office. It might seem like a small detail, but it contributes to the feeling of family and community that permeates the program. The Honors year is also punctuated by a variety of social events: the orientation picnic, Thanksgiving dinner, the December solstice party, Ben & Jerry's™ nights, the end-of-year picnic, and Honors Commencement Brunch.
Ben & Jerry's™ nights bear some explanation. They are relatively impromptu social occasions at which students get the flavor of ice cream that they designated when they signed the Honors Program Roll Book. These occasions mark the legacy of the first 荣誉计划 gift from a late 澳门银河官网 custodian, Shirley Nelson. She wanted a gift which would provide a time for student relaxation and enjoyment. She particularly admired people, including students, who know how to work hard and to strive for excellence in their daily lives.

We welcome first-year students for move-in on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 with special required Orientation activities designed to introduce you to the Honors Program community and to begin a four year program of personal growth and development. The highlight of Orientation for first-year Honors students is an overnight trip to Camp Oswegatchie in the beautiful lakeside setting in the Adirondacks. Activities include professionally-led low-ropes and high-ropes courses and a night hike, which challenge the individual and build teamwork skills. Honors Orientation culminates with a program-wide dinner where all new students in the program have the opportunity to sign the 荣誉计划 Roll Book and record their favorite flavor of Ben & Jerry’s™ ice cream (it’s a tradition among others that you will learn about!).
