Honors College Awards Ceremony

Each spring the Honors College hosts an Awards Ceremony, at which we recognize the recipients of our many scholarships, distinctions, and awards. The Fellowships Office, Office of Service Learning, and the student-led Committee for the Award for Academic Distinction also participate in the event.

One of the most distinctive and celebratory parts of the event is the distribution of Honors Cords to the graduating seniors. Our cords are intertwined strands of white and gold, signifying the interconnected foundations of knowledge with the traditions of Mizzou.
