Spring 2015 First-Year Honors Seminars
A few first-year honors seminars are offered in the spring semester for first-year students who are not enrolled in a Gateway Program. Students must apply and be accepted into these seminars, which do not satisfy the first-year seminar requirement. All first-year students receive an invitation in the fall semester prior to advance registration and must be recommended by their fall-semester first-year seminar instructor.
