What extra social opportunities are there for Honors students?
Honors students participate in every type of student group on campus. To start, the Honors community itself provides a wide range of opportunities for exchange of ideas and faculty-student interaction. The Perlman Honors Commons is the intellectual hub of the program, where students and faculty interact in beautiful surroundings. Weekly discussions, cultural and arts events, and stimulating conversations bring the space alive with constant activity. Famous campus visitors are available for conversation with students during our 'Lunch with Honors' series. A number of fun social events are sponsored by the Honors Residential Advisors in Honors Housing, and the Program makes it possible for students to attend an amazing variety of dance, theatre, and musical events both on and off campus at greatly reduced prices.
None of this, of course, precludes Honors students from participating in all of the other great opportunities that UM has to offer. Honors students serve in student government, write for the campus newspaper, play in the bands and orchestras, sing in the glee clubs and a cappella choirs - there is no limit to the things you can do!
