The Honors Day Convocation was established in 1980 as a celebration of academic excellence. The Convocation recognizes distinguished undergraduates from all disciplines, outstanding members of the various honor societies and honors students to be graduated with General Honors in May or Summer 2016. It is by invitation that students are invited to participate in the Convocation.

The invitation to participate will be sent in late March.
