20th Anniversary Celebration

20th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrate, Reconnect, and Envision the Future with Us

Our year-long journey of ideas will take us through events that connect alumni with current students and bridge the past, present, and future of the Honors experience.

Janna Levin 20th
Commonwealth Honors College Events Hall

In her new book Black Hole Blues and Other Songs from Outer Space, Levin offers the authoritative story of the headline-making discovery of gravitational waves—the soundtrack to astronomy’s silent movie.

Banu Subramaniam
Campus Center Auditorium

Drawing on her own training as a biologist, Subramaniam explores how science and society are inextricably linked, making a case for why feminism and science are critical for each other.

Commonwealth Honors College Events Hall

Honors alumni are invited to join Commonwealth Honors College current and former staff and students to celebrate the college's 20th Anniversary.

Erica Dunbar
Commonwealth Honors College Events Hall

As part of our 20th Anniversary Black History Month celebration, we are pleased to present Erica Armstrong Dunbar, writer, historian, and lecturer, who will examine the irreconcilable tension between the concept of freedom and the institution of slavery as illustrated through the life story of Ona Judge.
