Honors Day 2016

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

This year’s Honors Day is Thursday, April 7, 2016.

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.

This year, we are proud to present Ainissa Ramirez, award-winning scholar, inventor and educator, who will deliver the keynote address for Alma College’s annual Honors Day at 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 6 in the Remick Heritage Center. Ramirez is a “science evangelist” who is passionate about getting the general public excited about science. She is the author of Save Our Science: How to Inspire a New Generation of Scientists and co-author of Newton’s Football: The Science Behind America’s Game. Admission is free and open to the public.
