Honors Day

Honors Day was established to celebrate scholarly and creative activities in the liberal arts on Alma’s campus.

This year’s Honors Day is April 2, 2015. Check the schedule to plan your day.

Over the years, Alma College has fostered a tradition of involving undergraduate students in high-level scholarship and creative work. Our students have presented the results of their work from the laboratories, library, and studios in local, national and international venues.

All Alma students are invited to present their work on this exciting day. The Honors Day Committee encourages submissions of quality projects displaying methods of scholarship and creativity appropriate to their authors’ disciplines. Students who are interested should consult with their research or academic advisors.
