Honors Academy Fellows Presentations
Two-day event showcasing the diverse discipline projects Honors Academy students have working on all semester for their Honors classes and contracts.
Please come for any block of time you can. We know that many people may not be able to stay for the entire event, so please take a look at the presentation schedule and make plans to attend during blocks of time when something looks especially interesting to you. We hope to stick fairly close to the schedule, but be prepared for variations.
