Welcoming New Class of Honors Students

On Saturday, August 26, 2017, the Honors College welcomed a new class of nearly two hundred students – its largest and most diverse yet.

The 2017 Honors College Introduction featured activities such as icebreakers and a panel discussion, which allowed new freshman and transfer students to socialize and network with faculty and staff while receiving an overview of the honors experience at UMKC.

Representatives from the Academy of Integrated Arts, the Ewing Marion Kauffman School, and Enactus presented opportunities to get involved through the Honors College’s many community partnerships. Students also enjoyed tasty catering provided by Panera.
