The Honors Program at Lincoln Land Community College hosts many events and activities for students to enjoy.
Fall Leadership Retreat
During Fall Semester Honors Program students have a chance to participate in a weekend of fun and learning on the Honors Program Fall Leadership Retreat at Grizzly Jack’s Grand Bear Resort. Students get to know each other and faculty through exercises in leadership and through recreational activities such as swimming and hiking. There is no cost to students to participate in this retreat.
Spring Chicago Trip
In addition to the Fall Leadership Retreat, Honors Program students also have the opportunity to visit museums in Chicago in the spring. Ticket options vary from year to year, but may include the Museum of Science and Industry, the Field Museum, the Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute, and the Planetarium. This spring trip provides honors students with the chance to get away from the busy college campus and enjoy a fun, educational experience in downtown Chicago. There is a minimal cost to students for this trip.
As part of the leadership course HUM 112, Honors Program students participate in C.O.P.E. (Challenging Outdoor Personal Experience). C.O.P.E. consists of a two-day trip with confidence and team building activities through experiences on low-ropes and high-ropes courses. The first day focuses on strengthening trust within the group through the low course. Day two includes the high course, which focuses on self-mastery, overcoming fear, and achieving higher goals. Leadership skills learned on the trip are later applied in the Honors Program, in the classroom, and in daily activities.
The Honors Program Student Organization organizes a range of activities. Some are dedicated to fundraising and others to educational and enjoyable experiences for Honors Program students. The activities each year depend greatly on input from the students. Through monthly meetings, Honors Program students personalize program activities to fit their interests.
