“The Honors Colloquium had a huge impact on me, and in three days convinced me that the University of Texas was the perfect fit for me.”
-Wendes Gray, Former Participant and Honors Colloquium Mentor
In May 2014, the university will invite rising Texas high school seniors to participate in Honors Colloquium. Most students invited to participate are identified using data provided by the Student Search Service of the CollegeBoard. They come primarily from Texas high schools, but selected out-of-state schools are also represented. Many participants will eventually be named National Merit, National Achievement, or National Hispanic Finalists and Scholars, and compete for the university’s honor programs. Attendance at the Honors Colloquium is extremely limited as more students are invited than space allows.
Other outstanding students may be invited to participate based on a review of a student’s self-nomination consisting of a student’s letter of interest, high school transcript, letter of recommendation, and a copy of the student’s ACT, PSAT, or SAT test scores.
