Honors Freshman Orientation Retreat

Honors freshmen participate in an activity at H4.


The Honors Freshman Orientation Retreat (H4) is a wonderful way to jump-start your college career. After returning to WKU's campus from Deer Run Retreat Center, you will already know many of the people you will see in your residence hall, in your classes, and while walking around on the beautiful campus. This unique opportunity is only available to Honors students.

As a camper, you will be a part of a small group of other incoming freshmen, matched by field of study, and spend valuable time with your counselor - an upperclassman in your major.

Not only will you meet and begin friendships with other students in the college, you will meet the Honors College faculty and staff and find out what they can do for you over the next four years.

The H4 application will be available in early summer.
