Host a Student during the 2020 Honors College Interview Weekend

The annual Honors College Interview Weekend is February 7th and 8th, 2020. If you will be living on campus during the spring semester, we need you to help serve as an overnight host for prospective students. By hosting prospective students, you get a chance to share with them why you chose CofC Honors and to support them during the college decision process. You will also be helping our Honors College team out; this event is absolutely not possible without student hosts.

In order to sign up as a host, please complete the following survey by January 10th. There will also be other volunteer opportunities to help out with the event for CofC Honors students who don’t live on campus. If you have any questions, please email Elizabeth Roberts at
