Community-Building Events and Programs

Connect with the Honors community.

In addition to Honors LLCs for our first-year students, the John Martinson Honors Program provides a variety of opportunities for students of all years to connect with each other and Honors faculty and staff throughout the year.

Office Programming

The Honors Program hosts a variety of fun events in our office located at 150 Richards Hall throughout the year. These events have ranged from our Holly Jolly Holiday Party to an end-of-year Ice Cream Social and everything in between!

Student-Led Events

The Honors Events Council and the DEI Committee plan a variety of fun events throughout each semester. Past events have included study sessions with hot cocoa, a Women’s Networking Social, and a trip to Boda Borg.

Honors LLC Showcase

Our annual LLC Showcase provides each Honors LLC with an opportunity to present interactive displays highlighting the activities they did that year.

HEIST (Honors Exchange of Ideas, Skills, & Talents)

In this learning festival that takes place annually in the beginning of the Spring semester, students design and present their own workshops to their peers on a topic or skill they are excited about. Honors students learn from their peers as they attend a variety of workshops of their choice.

Check back for more information about next year’s HEIST starting in Fall 2024!

Honors Book Club

At the beginning of each semester, members nominate books they’d like to read and two to three selections are made by popular vote. The Honors Program provides all members with the books. The club meets bi-monthly, which allows each book to be discussed in part over the course of several weeks. The Honors Book Club is open to Honors students in all majors and years.

To learn more, or to request to join the Honors Book Club, please contact the Honors Program Office.

Northeastern Cultural Life & Honors

The undergraduate experience is different for every student, and it is essential to provide spaces for community to form. We work diligently with the Cultural Centers at Northeastern to increase access and visibility of intercultural and community programming for our students, encouraging them towards personal and professional development as they create their networks.
