About This Event
The mission of the Carl and Winifred Lee Honors College is to provide an exceptional undergraduate experience for high achieving students, to inspire in our graduates a thirst for the lifelong pursuit of creative inquiry and discovery, to provide our students with the skill and passion to address critical challenges, and to foster personal responsibility informed by a global perspective. Honors students are actively engaged in community service, complete an honors thesis based on independent research or creative activities and are strongly encouraged to participate in study abroad or our Study in the States program.

Proceeds from the Scholar Scare 5K will be used to provide scholarships for students to defray the costs of study abroad and Study in the States experiences.(www.wmich.edu/honors).
