Celebrating UHP’s Graduating Class of 2020

June 25, 2020

This year the University Honors Program is delighted to celebrate 111 graduates who have successfully completed the UHP curriculum. While we were unable to celebrate our graduating seniors in person as originally planned, we are so proud of everything they have accomplished in their time with UHP. This video was created in honor of our graduates’ accomplishments, and we look forward to hearing of their future achievements. Congratulations to the class of 2020! 

The Beginning of the Student Activities Committee

Spearheaded by our Student Activities Coordinator, the Student Activities Committee plans events and activities that enrich the Honors experience and strengthen our community.

Noticing that there should be more student activities for our Honors students, UHP enlisted Alisha Hacker to put together the Student Activities Committee (SAC). The committee, consisting of students from a diverse range of years, majors, and even UHP entry types, was created in Winter 2019.

Each year the University Honors Program hosts an end-of-the-year Spring Banquet celebration for our graduating seniors. This year a record 116 Honors graduates walked across the stage at Spring Banquet.

Spring Banquet is a formal dinner and celebration that gives students the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments in a small, intimate setting with their peers and families. As they walk up to the stage, students are greeted by the friendly and familiar faces of the UHP and Undergraduate Education leadership team who have supported them throughout their years at UC Davis.
