Honors Retreat 2023
Hall Memorial Building (HMB) N202C
The Fall 2023 Honors Retreat for incoming first-year Honors Students will be August 19-20, 2023 at the marvelous Mar-Lu-Ridge retreat center. Transportation will be provided from the Gallaudet campus. The retreat will include games, social activities, informational workshops on the Honors Program, and discussions of our Summer Reading selection.
Incoming first-year honors students will move in on August 18, 2023 and we’ll have you back on campus for the general New Student Orientation welcome on August 20.
More detailed information will be available this summer when we announce our Summer Reading Program selection for Honors students and plans for your welcome are finalized!
Honors Students in JumpStart will attend the Honors Retreat. The retreat is an excellent place to meet new friends. New signers who have joined the retreat have enjoyed the experience as a time to develop more confidence in their signing skills and to meet friends outside the JumpStart community. New signers have been surprised by how quickly they meet new friends and how well they are able to engage with their peers. Interpreters are provided for the academic discussions and are available at other times if needed.
Honors students need to ensure that their medical forms from the student health service have been submitted prior to their arrival at the University. Students who do not have their immunizations completed by the close of business on arrival day will not be able to attend the Honors Retreat.
Because participation in the retreat is a requirement for admission to Honors, students who do not attend the retreat will lose their Honors placement. If students have a scholarship with additional funding for participation in Honors, the loss of the Honors placement will reduce the scholarship award. Please check your Bison account for information on what the Student Health Service is missing from your required materials.
*Satisfactory performance in the Honors Retreat is required to retain an Honors placement. If you are not able to participate, contact Contact here as soon as possible. Failure to meet the expectations of the Honors Retreat will result in removal from the program.
