Honors Colloquium

During this annual event, students pursuing Honors projects present their work to faculty members and their fellow students. The Colloquium sessions are held in February with morning, afternoon and evening sessions in Blow Memorial Hall Room 201. Two student presentations are scheduled together in one-hour sessions. Each student will give a twenty-minute presentation and audience members will have ten minutes to ask questions after each speaker. The Colloquium is open to the public.


The 2015 Honors Colloquium will take place between February 16th and 26th.  Here is a full schedule of the student presentations.

Letter to Honors students from Lisa Grimes:

You are invited to take part in William & Mary's sixteenth annual Honors Colloquium. This year's Colloquium will take place February 16- 26, 2015 in Blow Hall Room 201. The Colloquium provides Honors students with an opportunity to present your ideas to an interdisciplinary audience, allowing you to gain oral presentation practice and feedback on your project at a stage where it can have some influence.  While participation in the Honors Colloquium is completely voluntary, it is a great way to prepare for your thesis defense!

Your twenty-minute presentation should consist of a concise summation of your thesis accessible to an audience of non-specialists. Audience members (thesis advisors, members of the thesis committee, other faculty, underclassmen in the discipline, friends, family, and anyone the presenter wishes to invite) will have ten minutes to ask questions after each presentation.  I strongly encourage you to invite the members of your examining committee.
