A cake that says "Welcome honors Alumni"

The Honors community that you made so rich and special while you were at UNCW continues as you experience and move on in your life. We always look forward to hearing from you and welcome you to visit anytime! Stop by Randall Library's second floor, room 2007, or send us a message at honors@uncw.edu.

In 2014-2015 we celebrated two milestones: 50 years since the first UNCW graduate completed a departmental honors project and 20 years since the Honors Scholars program began. Read more about the Honors history here

Students and family members chat in the Honors office during family and alumni weekend.

Family and Alumni Weekend

Each year the Honors College hosts a Family and Alumni Tea. It is a wonderful time for families to come and join their students and for alumni to rejoin us on campus, complete with Honors faculty members, current student ambassadors, and the entire Honors office staff! Check the Family and Alumni Weekend schedule for times and make sure to sign up for the event! More info at the UNCW Alumni web page.


We often have an event in celebration of homecoming. Check the schedule as it is updated regularly and our event will be listed there. We join with all the Seahawks returning home to the nest to celebrate and to spend time together. More info at the UNCW Alumni web page.

Connecting with Current Students

If you want to connect with current students in ways beyond Homecoming and the Family & Alumni Tea, drop us a line at honors@uncw.edu. Some ideas of ways you might get involved: 

  • Pass on information about internships or jobs
  • Host a volunteer opportunity for a group of current students
  • Offer to serve as an informational resource for students who might be interested in a career path like yours
  • Share a photo and your story so that we can feature our social meda
  • Refer a friend or family member applying to UNCW to check out the Honors College
  • Plenty of other options!
