Rotation of General Studies Honors Courses. The General Studies Honors Program follows a two-year cycle of courses which ensures that courses from the various categories in General Studies are available at least once in every four-year cycle.  General Studies Honors courses carry a section number ending with -80 or -81 with the exception of ENG112, MAT165, MAT167, and PHY210.  Honors classes with labs such as BIO105, CHE111 and PED101 may have only the lecture offered as -80 or -81. In that case, Honors Students can enter into a lab without this designation.

Colloquia.  Different colloquia are offered each semester.  In Fall, both first-semester freshman colloquia (HON195) and general colloquia (HON395) are offered.  Professors from across campus apply to teach colloquia which are selected by the Honors Committee.
