The Orators: In the Pursuit of “Happyness”
The honors college is launching a new program beginning the 2018-2019 school year entitled The Orators. The program’s focus is to invite speakers, representing various academic disciplines, to engage and enrich the campus and local communities, faculty, staff, students, and citizens, through public forums, panel discussions, seminars, course work, research and public lectures. Since the honors college touches all colleges at MSU through curriculum design, active research and special events, there will be a specific theme for each year. The theme for the first year is “Searching for Self: Who Am I Anyway?” This program will feature noted humanities scholars and activities to provide learning opportunities for area colleges, universities, and our communities.
