About Bing Honors College

Bing Honors College Overview

Bing Honors College (BHC) is a two-week program in early September for students actively engaged in researching and drafting their honors theses. Since its inception in 1993, BHC has pursued the goal of accelerating progress on Honors theses by offering students an uninterrupted block of time during which to focus on their work before the start of autumn classes; providing the close supervision of a Faculty Leader; and fostering a sense of intellectual community among students within and across academic disciplines.
