About the Honors Forum

Honors Forum 2014
Featuring Honors Projects by students in the 2013-2014 academic year [read more]

What It Is

The Honors Forum is an annual event near the end of the spring semester where Honors Projects are displayed to all attending. To promote widespread appeal, a talk by an invited speaker is given at the beginning of the event. Following the talk, students present their projects while refreshments are served. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to showcase your honors project which you worked hard on during the semester (and it looks good on your resume as well!). Any project done during the academic year (summer, fall, and spring) is eligible for the Forum at the end of the spring semester.

Poster Guidelines

Projects will be displayed in a format that best suits them, such as a poster, a portfolio, displayed artwork, etc. Most projects, but not all, are best suited for posters. Posters will be displayed on freestanding cardboard folding sheets (typically 3’ x 4’) . Each project (including non-posters) must have a title banner and a short abstract (one or two paragraphs describing the project). All writing on posters should be large enough to read from a distance of 5 feet.
