Welcome, Students, to a new year in the Honors College! If you're a returning student, we're so glad you're back! If you're new to the Honors College, we welcome you and look forward to getting to know you!
Here are some reminders and announcements for the first few weeks. Please be sure to read through the entire post.
Honors College CoVid-19 Resource Page
We understand that the impact of CoVid-19 is real, and difficult. We've created this resource for current information related to the pandemic to assist you: https://honors.uic.edu/hc-covid-19-information/. As you're in need of any support or guidance, please reach out to us!
Speaking of reaching out, we're so excited to work with you! We're here to support you in any way we can. Though it must be virtually for now, we're available as you need us, so please touch base! You will find your advisor's name on your HARS page, and will also receive an email from them to welcome you. In the meantime, you can always search for them (and our other staff members) here: https://honors.uic.edu/about/staff/.
Events for our Welcome Weeks
The HC has planned a lot of fun and informational events over the next two weeks to help welcome you to campus, ranging from live tours and wellness to a student panel. While these are targeted specifically to our new students, all Honors College students are welcome. All events will be held over Zoom. For a full list, take a look at our schedule or visit our website’s Events page.
