Honors Recognition Ceremony

The University Honors Program is pleased to host an annual Honors Recognition Ceremony. All students graduating with Latin Honors will be recognized for their dedication to learning, research, and the experiences that have placed them on the path to become our newest leaders and scholars.

Ceremony for the Class of 2018

The 2018 ceremony will be held at 7pm on Thursday, May 3rd, in Northrop Memorial Auditorium. Each student will receive a certificate, signed by President Kaler and the Director of the University Honors Program, and a medallion to be worn at their college graduation ceremony. This is a wonderful opportunity for family and friends to celebrate your accomplishments as an honors student. A reception will follow the ceremony. Please stay posted for details early in the Spring 2018 semester.

Keynote Speaker

We are thrilled to announce that Joseph Haj, Artistic Director at the Guthrie Theater, will join us as the keynote speaker for the 2018 Honors Recognition Ceremony! Haj also worked as an actor and director before joining the Guthrie in 2015.

As a director, Haj has worked at theaters throughout the United States including Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Actors Theatre of Louisville, and the Folger Theatre in Washington D.C., and has directed projects in a maximum-security prison, in the West Bank and Gaza, and in rural South Carolina. He was the 2014 recipient of The Zelda Fichandler Award, was named by American Theatre magazine as one of the 25 theater artists who will have a significant impact on the field over the next quarter century, and was recipient of the respected NEA/White House Council Millennium Grant awarded to 50 of America’s finest artists.
