Bing Honors College (BHC) is a two-week program in early September for students actively engaged in researching and drafting their Honors theses.

We expect to run the College on campus in 2024, though dates and programming are subject to change in response to public health measures.


You work individually and collectively and meet with your faculty leader; in addition, each Bing Honors College disciplinary cohort organizes group activities to help you develop skills needed for successful scholarship.
