Honors Welcome

Friday, August 17 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 Service Plunge

Saturday, August 18 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, August 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the LSU Student Union Ballroom

To launch the academic year, Luis Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway, will welcome the Honors College Class of 2016 to LSU. You are expected to purchase and read  The Devil's Highway before you arrive in August. The book explores immigration from the perspective of 26 men who unsuccessfully attempted to cross the Mexican border into Arizona in 2001. 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 box on the Honors Welcome registration page.
