Honors Orientation Information for Freshmen

Welcome to the Honors College’s information page for incoming first-year students! Incoming Honors College students have been sent a link for a mandatory live Zoom Honors Orientation with Honors staff, and on this page you will find links to help you prepare for that meeting (and to visit again as you prepare for the fall).

Please note that this information is specific to the Honors College and you will still need to complete your Virtual SOAR session.

Details about move-in for the Honors Living Learning Community (LLC) and other residence halls will be sent to students directly from Housing.

Students living in the Honors LLC on either the Armstrong or Statesboro campuses will receive information specific to those communities’ move-in dates. All other Honors College students living in other buildings will receive information about their move-in times.

Honors Q & A on Zoom

The Honors College will schedule Question and Answer sessions on Zoom throughout June and July. Details will be discussed during the Honors Zoom Orientation Sessions.

In the meantime, please look at our list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Additional Resources:

One of the wonderful aspects of being an honors student is that you get to take advantage of the opportunities provided by the Honors College and all of the opportunities of the broader university.  Virtual SOAR has been constructed to insure you have all the information you need as an incoming student.

The Office of Orientation will be hosting SOAR Live events throughout the summer to provide you the information you need to prepare for the fall semester.  You can register on the calendar of events.  

The Honors College staff works closely with your major academic advisor.  Be sure to check out the page the Office of Advising has prepared with information for incoming students
