2021 Honors College Welcome Events Schedule

Each year, the Honors College offers various activities, meetings, and programs to welcome our incoming Honors students. Below you will find the calendar of events for the first few weeks of the semester. 


2021 Mandatory Honors First-Year Welcome Meetings

You should have received an email to your Clemson email address from Katie Maxwell regarding the date/time of the first-year welcome meeting you have been assigned to attend. Please be sure to attend the meeting you have been assigned to. Participation is mandatory and we will be taking attendance at each meeting. Below are the meeting dates/times but, once again, please be sure to attend the meeting you have been assigned to! If you have questions or concerns, you can email Katie at bower2@clemson.edu

As stated in the email you received about your meeting date/time, please be sure to review the Honors First-Year Welcome Meeting modules located in the Honors Canvas workgroup. All incoming Honors students have been added to the Honors College Canvas workgroup. When you click on the workgroup in your Canvas dashboard, you can find the Honors Freshman Meeting modules in the "Modules" section of the workgroup. It is VERY important you work through the modules prior to the meeting, as we won't cover all of the information in detail during the meeting. This module will remain available for the entire academic year, should you need to refer to it in the future.

Welcome Meeting Dates/Times

Location: ALL meetings will be held in the Great Hall located in the Honors Center at Cribb and Deschamps Halls.
