Family and Alumni Weekend

Each year the Honors College hosts a Family and Alumni Tea in the Honors Seminar room and office suite on the 2nd floor of Randall Library! 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, currents 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.
