The Honors Colloquia, open only to first-year students in Fan Gongxiu Honors College, are interdisciplinary seminars designed to increase understanding of the primary concerns, the intellectual traditions, and the epistemologies of the engineering disciplines. These seminars offer you a special chance to broaden your perspectives by interacting with faculty members and honors students from widely diverse fields of study. They invite you to sharpen your critical reading, thinking, speaking and writing skills so that you may thrive in your professional, civic, and personal lives. Note that all Honors students are required to take this Honors Colloquia as part of the Honors Distribution. The colloquia are offered each fall semester, and bundled with a One Book One Community project to fulfil the breadth requirement of engineering education.
