Honors College Induction Ceremony


A Commonwealth Honors College tradition of welcoming new students and families to our living and learning community.

Honors College Induction Ceremony

Thank you for being a part of our community

The Honors College begins each fall semester with an induction ceremony. This time-honored tradition is a way for each member of our community to celebrate and thank new students and families for choosing to share their UMass journey with us. The Commonwealth Honors College induction ceremony is a milestone that marks our collective commitment to academic excellence, and our dedication to curiosity and the exploration of ideas, all in the service of developing a deeper understanding of and finding solutions to real-world challenges.
