Honors Program to Host Welcome Ceremony, Aug 28

Honors and Undergraduate Research will be hosting an Honors Welcome Ceremony on Sunday, August 28, from 1 pm to 2 pm in Rudder Theatre.  All students participating in Honors Programs at Texas A&M University are invited to attend.

This ceremony serves as the official “Howdy” from the University Honors Program to new and returning Honors students.  Speakers will include Dr. Sumana Datta, Executive Director of Honors and Undergraduate Research, Dr. Lesia Crumpton-Young, newly appointed Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies, and Ms. Rika Mallepally, University Scholar ’12.

At this ceremony, speakers will discuss the future of Honors study at Texas A&M and its place in undergraduate education as a “high impact” educational practice.  The ceremony will also feature the induction of the new class of University Scholars, the official student ambassadors for the University Honors Program.

Following the Honors Welcome Ceremony, Freshman Honors students are also invited to then attend Freshman Convocation, which begins at 2:30 p.m. in Reed Arena.  Freshman Convocation is the official beginning of a new student’s entry into Texas A&M University’s Community of Learners and Scholars.
