The Key to the College


Each year, the Mahurin Honors College awards the Key to the College in recognition and appreciation for extraordinary commitment and service to the Mahurin Honors College. The Key is presented at the annual Graduate Luncheon ceremony, held in May. The Key is an exact replica of that which unlocks the Gatehouse at Harlaxton College, located in Grantham, England.
