Honors Community

Honors is more than coursework. True honors students seek a "life of the mind" outside the classroom walls, so the Honors College promotes  intellectual vibrancy by engaging the honors community in a variety of events and experiences. First, the honors community include residence halls to foster a true living-learning experience. Floyd Hall houses honors freshmen and Pocahontas Hall gives older honors students the chance to stay connected. Second, the honors community includes a variety of scholarly, social, and service events each year. Whether it is a trivia tournament, kayaking on the New River, or a trip to the American Shakespeare Center, the Honors College brings students together and pays for all event costs. The Honors Student Council also plays an active role in shaping the direction of the honors community and it's activities. A complete list of events can be found on the Honors College D2L and are promoted on social media, in the honors weekly email, and on the electronic board in the Floyd Hall lobby. Finally, select honors students and faculty travel with each other to honors conferences each year. These conferences are opportunities to share the best experiences that are happening in honors programs around the country (including Radford!).
