All SAS Honors Program students are required to complete at minimum one Honors Colloquium. Students who enter the SASHP as first-year students are required to complete a second Honors Colloquium, or an approved alternate: Byrne Seminar or a credit-bearing study abroad program/course.
The goal of the Honors Colloquium is to stimulate intellectual curiosity and discussion as well as provide students with an interdisciplinary approach to learning. Through discussions, lectures, film screenings, and museum visits, students will explore topics of social, scientific, and philosophical significance.

This fall, Honors Colloquium will focus on themes from our 2020 Summer Reading book is Tell Me Who You Are by Winona Guo and Priya Vulchi. This book was written by two women from New Jersey who are currently college students. After graduating from high school in 2017, Guo and Vulchi took a gap year to travel the country and interview people about their stories of race, culture, and identity. As one of the nation’s most diverse universities, Rutgers offers a wonderful array of stories within our own student body. We will use this course to examine how people relate to one another and communicate their different views of the world. By sharing stories across the SAS Honors Program, we will learn not only how to speak about issues of identity, but also how to listen.
