Weber State University Honors Program

 

The Honors Center is open virtually!
While the Honors Center is closed, you can still drop-in to the Virtual Honors Center between 11 am - 1 pm, Monday - Friday until April 24.

The purpose of the Virtual Honors Center is to create a space online for Honors and Aletheia students to hang out, chat, catch-up, ask questions, and in general, have a community online to replicate the physical space of the Honors Center in the library. 

Virtual Honors Center


Please note that just like in the Honors Center under normal circumstances, Honors staff may not be available at all times.
If you wish to meet individually via Zoom with the Honors advisor, Megan Moulding, set-up an appointment here: https://wsuhonors.youcanbook.me
You can also contact her directly via email (honors@weber.edu) or phone (between 8:30 am - 3 pm) at 801-626-7591.

Weber State University’s Honors Program offers you small, challenging and creative courses, as well as opportunities for leadership and social interaction.
An “Honors” designation on your transcript and diploma makes you more attractive to employers, graduate schools and professional programs.
