Honors Welcome

Friday, August 22 at 9:00 a.m. in the LSU Student Union Ballroom

After eating breakfast with your new Honors classmates, you will receive your LSU Honors College Student Handbook, learn more about the requirements and opportunities the Honors College offers, and have a chance to ask questions of current Honors  students. All first-year Honors students must register for Honors Welcome.

Community Bound

Saturday, August 23 at 8:00 a.m. in the LSU Student Union Theater

As service is the theme for your first year in the Honors College, all incoming Honors students will participate in a day of service fixing up local public schools and other community sites.  You will be re-directed to the Community Bound registration page after signing up for Honors Welcome below. Registration for Community Bound is required.

Honors Convocation

Wednesday, September 3 at 7:00 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Ballroom

To launch the academic year, David Finkel, author of Thank You for Your Service, will address the Honors College Class of 2018. You are expected to purchase and read Thank You for Your Service before you arrive in August. The book chronicles the lives of soldiers as they return from Iraq. The book is intended to spark the type of vibrant conversations that are fundamental to the Honors experience at LSU.


If you plan to participate in Fraternity Recruitment, Sorority Recruitment, or Tiger Band, and/or if you are in a Residential College (e.g., Business, Engineering, Mass Communication, etc.), please be sure to check the appropriate selections on the Honors Welcome registration page.
