Honors Orientation

Come discover what we're all about!

At orientation, you’ll learn about all the resources, helpful staff members, and requirements that make up the Honors College and start on your own personalized Honors plan. Interesting courses, funding for independent projects, hands-on field studies — there's plenty you can explore, and you'll get to choose what's most interesting to you. The earlier you dive into Honors opportunities, the better! It will set you up for scholarships and more unique options as an upperclass student.

More details about the Fall 2021 orientation will be sent out after students are accepted.

Fall 2021 orientation will be a mix of online and in-person events throughout Summer 2021 and the beginning of the fall semester. More details will be sent to your Pitt email throughout the summer, so make sure to check that often! If you have any questions about orientation, please reach out to Parker Werns at paw64@pitt.edu.
