Each semester, the Honors College sponsors a program of informal reading groups.  The groups meet just one hour per week, with 10-15 students and one faculty member from the Honors College, to discuss about 50 pages of reading from specific books. The books cover a very wide range of topics, and most have been recommended by Honors students.  To participate, the only commitment is that each student makes a good-faith effort to do the reading and come to the group meeting as often as possible, with the understanding there may be one or two weeks when students need to do other things.  This is a great chance to meet other Honors students with similar interests.  The goals of the program can be summarized as "maximum information and enjoyment, with zero stress."  The Honors College is strongly committed to the format of this program, including these features:

  • No tuition or fees
  • No quizzes or tests
  • No grades
  • Free books
  • Read, think, and discuss with other Honors College students on
    important topics of mutual interest

A description and schedule of these reading groups is issued prior to the beginning of each semester:
