Honors Welcome is a series of events for new Honors College students that takes place before the first day of classes.

All incoming students are required to register for Honors Welcome and Community Bound using the link below.

Move-In Day

Honors Welcome

Friday, August 23 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 24 at 9:00 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 4 at 7:00 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Ballroom

To launch the academic year, Mark Hertsgaard, author of Hot: Living through the Next Fifty Years on Earth, will welcome the Honors College Class of 2017 to LSU. You are expected to purchase and read  Hot before you arrive in August. The book investigates climate change and what the rapidly warming planet means for humankind over the next fifty years. The book touches on many topics that impact 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 box on the Honors Welcome registration page.
