Check out our upcoming events:
Here is the Community Charter, with all the information you need about the program requirements regarding attending events.
The Keystone Symposium is an annual event hosted by the Honors Humanities program, during which students present their projects to colleagues, family and friends. The format is similar to that of an academic conference, giving students the experience of presenting original research.
Humaniday is an opportunity for students to apply their understanding of the humanities to make an impact in their community. The day is focused on service to the community. Previous Humanidays have focused on service at A Wider Circle, animal shelters, the Laurel Museum, local public gardens and more.
Throughout the year, the council hosts events for students to interact outside of an academic context. Previous events have included hiking, ice-skating, pumpkin picking, zoo visits and more.
The Lively Arts on Campus and in Washington
Both in the course HHUM 106 and outside through program events, our students attend theatrical musical events, visit museums, and take advantage of the many cultural activities in the area.
At the end of each academic year, our students put on their best attire, share dinner together, and attend a dance to celebrate the completion of the program.
