Summer Connections for Cohort 2022

Welcome Cohort 2022!

We look forward to meeting you all virtually over the summer and then IN PERSON in the fall. Below are some opportunities for you to meet with Honors faculty, staff, and your future peers. Zoom links will be sent to students' WWU emails closer to event dates.

Additionally, keep track of any to-do's you need to accomplish before the start of Fall Quarter with the WWU Admitted First-Year Guide.

Salon Schedule

Join us for low-pressure discussions to toss around ideas and reactions to different readings.

We hope you will join us as your schedule allows. If you need financial assistance with purchasing any or all of the texts, please email honors@wwu.edu with a book request.
