Honors for a Day

What is an Honors for a Day campus visit?

An Honors for a Day visit is a chance for you to meet one-on-one with an advisor to discuss how the University Honors Program can enhance your experiences at the University of Kansas. The University Honors Program will connect you with fulfilling opportunities including research, internships, and study abroad. You will find yourself a part of a dynamic community of thinkers and doers, connected via small courses, honors housing, learning communities, and a wide variety of extra-curricular activities across campus.

Top staff, faculty, and students provide a broad network of knowledge so that you can build a one-of-a-kind college career designed to explore your specialized interests and passions.

The Honors for a Day visit will help you learn more about these connections and opportunities.

What can you do on your visit?

In addition to an appointment with an advisor, you can get a taste of life as an honors student by constructing your own personalized visit to campus. You can request to:

  • sit in on an honors course
  • meet with a professor in your area(s) of interest
  • speak with a current honors student
  • tour a Residence Hall and/or Scholarship Hall
  • take a campus tour with representatives from the Office of Admissions
  • tour a lab or other research facility
  • tour a professional school or department

If you choose to participate in these optional activities, be prepared to spend half a day to a full day on campus.

When should you come?

We strongly advise students to come to campus when classes are in session. Not only will you have more options to interact with students, faculty and staff, but you will also experience the University of Kansas at the height of its activity.
