Honors College Convocation

The Honors College Convocation is a short welcoming ceremony with alumni, faculty, and current student speakers for our over 600 new students. All new students are expected to attend. A link to view the convocation will be sent by 2:30 pm on September 1 and also uploaded to our Youtube Channel. After the convocation, please plan to join us for our HC Green Teams reception at your assigned time (either 3-3:30 pm or 4-4:30 pm) with a smaller group of incoming students,Honors College staff and student leaders. 

HC Green Teams

One of the most important aspects of membership in the Honors College is becoming part of the Honors community at MSU, an opportunity to get to know other diverse, interesting, and engaging students from around the nation and world who share a commitment to academic excellence.

Your Green Team provides the space to meet HC staff, student leaders, and other incoming students in the Honors College who share similar academic interests. Joining your Team will also serve as a great way to meet people in your classes, and maybe even make a study buddy! Incoming students have each been assigned to a Green Team, which will hold a 30-minute meeting following HC Convocation on Tuesday September 1st. Please check your MSU e-mail for more details and information on your Green Team and reach out to Emileigh Stoll at with any questions.

HC Resource Fair

The annual Honors College Resource Fair has gone virtual this year! Hosted by Easy Virtual Fair (EVF), incoming students will have the opportunity to meet and engage with a variety of Honors College student organizations and learn more about getting involved! This year's fair will take place on Friday, September 11th from 3-5 PM. Please check your MSU e-mail for more details soon!
