CLA Honors Colloquium: Presenting Scholarly Work and Research




The honors colloquium is an annual event held during the Spring semester in which College of Liberal Arts students present work they have done for honors courses. Professors recommend work for the Colloquium, and CLA students may also submit work on their own. Any work completed for an honors course over the previous two semesters (fall/spring - including projects for honors contract courses) is eligible for consideration. The deadline for the application, abstract, and scholarly work submissions for the 2015 Honors Colloquium will in early January 2015. All CLA students receive notice of the deadline through the CLA honors newsletter and through various mailings. Additional information can always be obtained through the CLA Honors office.
