The Honors Program is not without its traditions. There are several annual events, including all-program retreats, that provide a "time-out" from classes and prove to bring forth many memorable moments for years to come.
The beginning of fall semester finds the Honors Program members relaxing around beautiful Camp Reed, 40 miles north of Spokane. The retreat begins with the traditional First-year and Senior introductions. Beyond that, much of the time is reserved for recreation, including kayaking, boating and swimming on Camp Reed's beautiful lake. Also frequent are volleyball, basketball, soccer, and hiking.
The spring retreat is held at the Bozarth Mansion in North Spokane. The retreat offers a great opportunity to socialize and get away from classes.
The final event of the year is a brunch to honor the graduating seniors. Each senior gives a short presentation of their Honors Thesis to the rest of the program and presents a tidbit of his or her life-wisdom to the rest of the Honors students.
