Please check back in May 2017 for more information about the upcoming Honors Experience on Sunday, June 25, 2017.
What is the Honors Experience?
The Honors Experience is a special overnight program designed for incoming Honors freshmen and transfer students. You'll make friends with new and current Honors students, meet faculty and staff, and learn about registering for classes. Meals are provided. Parents are invited to join their students for lunch and to remain for an information session. The next morning, parents and students will be reunited for breakfast in the Campus Center and the rest of Stockton's Orientation activities.
Invitations for the 2016 Experience will be mailed in mid-May. If you are an accepted Honors student and have not received your invitation by June 1, please contact us at HonorsDirector.stockton.edu
What You'll Need:
The Honors Experience is only for accepted Honors students. If you have been accepted to the Honors Program, you will receive a mailing with more inforrmation.
What to Bring to the Honors Experience:
For activities and residential life:
Some activites require removing shoes indoors; bring/wear socks if you don't like going barefoot.
Soap (none provided in dorms), hair care products, and other hygiene essentials
An extra towel (students have found the ones from Residential Life to be pretty small)
An extra blanket and pillow (the air conditioning in the dorm rooms can get pretty cold)
Sunscreen and insect repellent (you'll be glad you did)
Whatever personal items you'll need for a night away from home
An open mind
A friendly smile
Lots of questions
What do the students say?
"Participating in the Honors Experience is the first step in becoming a part of the Honors Program family. Make this first step truly matter and get the most out of the day!"
"My favorite part of the Honors Experience was definitely getting the opportunity to meet the people I would be living and spending the next four years with. It was comforting to show up on move in day and see some familiar faces."
"Though I was very hesitant to partake in it when I was a freshman, it ended up being very fun and allowed for a smooth transition to talk to others."
"As soon as I arrived to Stockton and was greeted, I knew that it would not only be a good weekend at Stockton, but a good 4 years. The Honors Experience gave me the opportunity to be more familiar with the campus, bond with incoming and current students, ask questions, and give me a preview of what my future would entail. It made me very excited for my future, and I wish I could relive it over and over again."
"My absolute favorite part of the Honors Experience is the family bond the students bring to the program. Each one of us is supportive and appreciative towards one another. My Honors family is my home away from home."
-- Anthony, Honors Counselor
