Next week, June 5-10, we’re heading to Loyola University’s Lake Shore Campus in Chicago for the 50th Honors Institute!

We’re expecting a full house — more than 500 members and advisors will be on site to learn more about the Honors Study Topic, How the World Works: Global Perspectives, explore Chicago, and receive specialized training on Honors in Action.

Coming? Check out these event highlights.

Speakers — Our lineup includes a Chicago historian, a polar explorer, a fashion designer, and a ragtime pianist. Each will bring their own perspectives to the Honors Study Topic. Meet them.

City As Text™ — Seminar groups will be assigned specific Chicago neighborhoods to explore in the City As Text™ walk-abouts on June 7.

College Transfer Fair — Nearly 50 four-year colleges and universities will be participating in our College Transfer Fair on Tuesday, June 6. See the list.

Educational Forums — Four rounds of Educational Forums will be held during the week, and each round will have five different sessions — all focused on Honors in Action.

Regional Officer Training — This exclusive training session will focus on the unique duties of regional officers and how they can successfully lead their regions and chapters.

Explore More! Day — Explore Chicago and the surrounding area on your own on June 9. If you plan to participate, please make sure you’ve added the “Explore More! Day” to your Honors Institute registration. There’s no extra charge; this simply guarantees that you have lodging that night.
