Honors College Info Sessions

Through small and focused sessions, students and families who would like to make Commonwealth Honors College their destination of choice have a chance to meet Honors students who can share first-hand experiences and knowledge about resources available. You will get a real flavor for the opportunities and advantages here—not to mention an opportunity to ask what a virtual Honors experience is has been like.
