Every spring semester the Honors College sponsors a nationally-recognized speaker to discuss their area of expertise and how they "know what they know." The Honors Lecture is intended to model the joy of learning and exploration, especially for honors students as they embark on the creation of new knowledge in their senior capstone projects. Although the Honors Lecture is open to the entire campus community, honors students have an opportunity to share a meal with the speaker.
