Welcome to the Honors College at Towson University! As a member of the incoming Honors College class, you are required to attend Honors College Orientation. Honors College Orientation will take place from 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 1 through 3:00 p.m. on Friday, August 2.
Honors College Orientation is a great opportunity for you to meet your peers, familiarize yourself with the Towson University campus and the Honors College, learn about the requirements of the Honors College, meet honors faculty and staff, and much more. Honors College Orientation is not all work...we play, too! We have great teambuilding activities, friendly competitions, and lots of opportunties to spend time with incoming and current honors students. Housing and meals will be provided for you and you'll stay in one of Towson University's residence halls on campus. However, you will need to supply your own linens (i.e., pillows, sheets, towels, etc.). Check out www.tuhonorsorientation.blogspot.com
for more information about preparing for your stay during orientation.
An "Honors College Read" will be part of your orientation experience at Towson. The "Honors College Read" this year will be 'King Peggy: An American Secretary, Her Royal Destiny, and the Inspiring Story of How She Changed an African Village' by Towson University alumnus Eleanor Herman. Please read this book prior to orientation. The book is available at local libraries or can be purchased through an online retailer. We'll have a lively book discussion facilitated by a special guest during orientation.
Please remember to activate your Towson University email account. We will be sending reminders and important information to that email account only. We also recommend that you stay connected to the Honors College Orientation Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/events/169913523168800/?notif_t=plan_user_invited#!/groups/151107125069080/
