Honors College Events

Co-curricular activities are an important part of the honors experience at Millersville University. The Honors College recognizes that much of your education occurs beyond the walls of the classroom. Your ideas are shaped by your experiences. We encourage our students to participate in an array of social, cultural, and recreational activities.

In keeping with the emphasis on community here within the Honors College, we also recognize the need to give back to the community-- both the university community and the community at large. Honors students participate in the United Way Day of Caring, Empty Bowls, community service time at the Lancaster SPCA, and many other community service based programs.

Service is a rewarding part of college life. The Honors College Student Association is committed to lending a hand. You may devote your energies to various causes: human rights, hunger and homelessness, women's issues, and tutoring programs.

Downtime is essential for the successful college student. To relieve stress, students have cheered the Marauders on at football games, picnicked with the swans, and relished sumptuous end-of-the-semester banquets.

Nearby, Lancaster boasts nightlife and culture. Honors students attend plays, Broadway musicals, museum and gallery openings, the ballet, and opera.  Generally, the Honors students take two bus trips a year going to Washington, DC in the fall and New York City in the spring.
