In an effort to cut down on large group gatherings during the situation surrounding the Coronavirus, the University Scholars event requirement for the Fall 2020 semester has been waived. The Scholars Program will still be hosting and promoting virtual events that we feel are beneficial to our students; so we encourage you to please continue to check our website to take advantage of these opportunities.

Events are added on a rolling basis throughout the semester,  so please check the webpage regularly.
