Study Desserts

This traditional Honors event is held on the last day of classes. It offers our Honors students an opportunity to defuse some of the stress surrounding finals by taking a study break with other students, feasting on delicious desserts and enjoying good conversation.

Honors Council

The Council is an all-volunteer group of students who lead our fall retreat, serve as mentors to incoming students, explain our program at various Admissions Dats, and decide how we will build our social program each year.

First Year Retreat

This annual fall event for all first-year Honors students takes place on the first Saturday after classes begin. We have upper class Retreat Leaders that will answer any of your questions about the day to day here at Albion, explain how the Honors classes work, how FURSCA works, the Thesis process and anything else you might have a question on. This is a great way for you to get to know all of the other new Honors students in the program and hopefully make some new friends.
