    University Archives in collaboration with the Honors College at UNCW, present an exhibit on the history of Honors at UNCW.

    Honors College celebrates two anniversaries this year! 50 years of Departmental Honors and 20 years of the Honors Scholars Program. With materials from the Honors College and University Archives documents and artifacts, the exhibit traces the a history from Departmental Honors to the Honors Scholars Program to the Honors College of today. 

    The exhibit showcases major milestones in the history of Honors, displaying the first thesis, completed in 1965 by Phyllis Boyles; a photo of the first graduate of the 4-year program, Nicholas Allen; and a program from the 2011 dedication of the Honors College. The exhibit also illuminates the wide variety of activities and opportunities the Honors College has sponsored over the years, including research conferences and journals, honors student trips, an award-winning newsletter, and other publications. The exhibit also highlights a few honors students who are now current faculty members, such as Dr. Tom Lankford and Dr. Julian Keith. 

    The exhibit will be on display throughout the spring semester. For more on the Honors College‚Äôs anniversaries, visit their website by clicking here.
