Honors Students Welcome
The Honors Students Welcome introduces incoming Honors students to the University Honors Program (UHP), giving you the opportunity to meet other students already part of the UHP.
A Chance to Connect
This free, day-long program is one of the earliest benefits available to you as a member of the UHP. Along with the opportunity to move onto campus a day early, you will have a chance to meet other Honors students and learn how the UHP can maximize your college experiences. There is time for both parents and students to ask questions about the University Honors Program and UD in general. Upper class Honors students are leaders during the day and available for questions throughout the event and into the semester.
Registration by July 1 is required.
While parents' participation ends after the UHP Welcome lunch, they are encouraged to remain in the area to participate in Saturday's "New Student Orientation" for all incoming students.

Below is a general timeline of the event. More detailed information will be mailed in late July or early August.
