With the University’s decision to cancel pre-arrival programs for Fall 2020 in an attempt to maximize the health and safety for all students, faculty, and staff, the Honors Program regretfully will also cancel our planned City as Text™ orientation for incoming Honors scholars.
Refunds will be processed for all students who had already registered and paid for the program.
In consultation with the faculty and student leaders who support the City as Text™ program, the Honors staff are planning an alternative opportunity for Honors scholars that we hope will facilitate some of the elements we most value about City as Text™:
- a chance to reflect on the built and natural environments in which we dwell, including the effects of predictable elements like season or time of day, startling changes like the impact of COVID-19, and sweeping changes like the national movement for racial justice;
- a chance to seed the community that is so crucial to the Honors experience.
Please watch this site and your UMW email for more information SOON on this alternative Honors experience!
If you have any questions , please contact email@example.com.
*City as Text is an honors pedagogy trademarked by the National Collegiate Honors Council.
