At each orientation session, Honors will host a dessert reception following dinner in the dining hall on day 1 of orientation for new Honors students and their guests/families. Several current Honors students and advisors from each of Clemson's colleges will also attend to answer questions students have about course registration, majors, and more! STUDENTS AND FAMILIES DO NOT NEED TO REGISTER SEPARATELY FOR THIS DESSERT RECEPTION, as it is a part of the Honors orientation schedule.
