New! Important Reminder:

The semester is wrapping up, so now is a good time to check that you have completed your passport requirements. Please remember that you are required to attend one Honors Signature and one Honors Social event each semester you are in the Honors College. If you do not complete the passport events for the semester, you will be placed on probation. Failure to complete the passport events (plus any make-up events) will result in a dismissal from the Honors College.

*Sign into OrgSync: https://getinvolved.boisestate.edu/
*Left hand menu click on OrgSync
*Top right menu and click on “my memberships”
*Select “Boise State Honors College”

New! Honors Alumni Mentoring Program

Applications are due December 12.

Boise Contemporary Theater
Tickets are $10 each (limited to first 20 students)
Eleven-year-old Verne lives in Arco, Idaho, where the nights are getting longer. Half a world away, where more often than not it’s already tomorrow, lives a girl named Aki. She hates her new home in rural Japan and he’s terrified of what comes out when the sun goes down. They’re united by a shared mystery and an unshared darkness. A fantastic adventure of friendship, hope and imagination set in two places where monsters just might exist. To RSVP for tickets please contact christopherhyer@boisestate.edu.
