For Prospective Students
The Honors Program holds an orientation for the incoming
Honors students each fall during Viking Venture. The Honors Student Guide is reviewed and a time for Q&A
is provided. The Honors
Student Union initiated a mentoring program in which small groups of incoming students are assigned to seasoned Honors students. These groups are introduced to their
mentors during the orientation, and subsequent meetings allow the students to
become immediately involved in HSU activities.
Opportunities and Student Recognition
- Students have the opportunity to travel to regional and national

related expenses are covered.
