Honors students are highly involved in the academic life of the university.

Here are some of the activities that Honors students take on in the course of an academic year:

Annual Honors Lecture and Reception

In the 2019-20 academic year, the UMA Honors Program inaugurated its annual Honors Lecture and Reception for all Honors Program students at UMA locations across the state. Moving forward, this event will take place mid-winter and alternate between UMA’s Augusta and Bangor campuses. The first lecture took place at the Bangor campus. The lecture and reception will offer Honors Program students the opportunity to meet UMA’s President, meet other Honors Program students, and join in thoughtful scholarly discussion.

The Honors Program sponsors an annual conference on the UMA campuses and at the Centers for undergraduates to present their research. Find out more about the conference »

Honors Program Spaces

The Honors Program has designated space in the collaborative zone area of the Katz Library on the Augusts campus, and in one of the study rooms of the Nottage Library on the Bangor campus. These spaces are places for Honors Program students to study, meet, and socialize, and plan Honors Program events. Visit the UMA Libraries »
