One aspect of building an Honors Community is having the opportunity to learn from and alongside fellow honors students and faculty. In order to do this, we offer a variety of Honors Community Events to enhance your Honors experience outside the classroom. These might include lectures, presentations by fellow Honors students, or social events. Honors students are required to participate in at least 8 Honors Community Events by the time they graduate.*

These community events will be announced to all Honors students and may include: Honors course speakers; Honors course presentations; presentations/performances of undergraduate thesis work; cultural events sponsored by the Student Honors Council; and/or special events sponsored by the Honors Program. We strongly encourage Honors students to suggest guest speakers and group outings to special events, lectures, and exhibits—on campus and beyond—related to their honors coursework or thesis research. Also, students should request that the Honors Program office invite fellow honors students and faculty to events related to their honors courses and theses.

*Honors community events are in addition to Butler Cultural Community Events required by the core curriculum.
