Honors Welcome is a series of events for new Honors College students that takes place before the first day of classes. These events are part of LSU’s Bengal Bound events but are specific to Honors College students and their families. All incoming students should register for Honors Welcome and the Community Bound Service Plunge using the link below.

Roaring Into The Halls (Move-In Day)

Thursday, August 18 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Honors College students can move into their residence halls at any time after 8:00 a.m.  Honors College Leaders and Residential Life staff will be available to assist you. Please use designated unloading zones. For more information, please visit the Department of Residential Life's Roaring into the Halls page.

If you are an Honors student living in a residence hall other than West Laville or Acadian Hall please visit the Roaring into the Halls page for more information about your specific residence hall’s move-in day details.

Honors College Family Picnic

Thursday, August 18 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on the Acadian Hall Front Lawn 

Bring your family and join the Honors College staff and students for lunch at our annual Family Picnic, hosted by the Honors College parents' organization, Les Amis des Etudiants.  All Honors College students and their families are invited.

Honors Welcome

Friday, August 19 at 9:00 a.m. in the 4-H Mini Barn (located next to Parker Coliseum)

After eating breakfast with your new Honors classmates, we will walk to Howe-Russell where 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 20 at 9:00 a.m. in Bo Campbell Auditorium (located at the Cox Communications Academic Center for Student Athletes)

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 redirected to the Community Bound registration page after signing up for Honors Welcome below. Registration for Community Bound is required; registration for Leap into Leadership is optional.

Honors Convocation

Wednesday, August 24 at 7:00 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Ballroom

To launch the academic year, Bruce Watson, author of Freedom Summer, will welcome the Honors College Class of 2015 to LSU. You are expected to purchase and read Freedom Summer before you arrive in August. The book documents the experiences of college-aged volunteers who partnered with grassroots advocates to bring voter registration drives and educational initiatives to segregated Mississippi during the summer of 1964. The book touches on many topics that still resonate within society today; we hope this sparks the type of vibrant conversations that are fundamental to the Honors Experience at LSU.


If you plan to participate in Fraternity or Sorority Recruitment or Tiger Band please be sure to check the appropriate boxes when you register for Honors Welcome and take note of the related details.
