The WoS runs all day with mandatory and option activities at night. In order to be fully immersed in serving and getting to know fellow freshmen, it is recommended that participants not be involved in any other activities that week.
This class is a 1 credit hour pass/fail Honors College participation course (i.e. does not affect your GPA) that would run in the Fall semester. The class only meets 6 times over the semester. See "Course Offering: HONR 1087."
At the time of signing up to participate in the WoS, you will indicate whether you want to be in the class or not. Honors College staff will then place students in the class. This class will remain closed throughout CWE since only participants are eligible to be in this class.
