Spring Banquet

A record number of Honors graduates walk across the stage at Spring Banquet 2019

June 06, 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.

One of the most unique aspects of the University Honors Program is the innovative, discussion-based, honors courses. UHP students have the opportunity to engage with their professors and peers through these settings in a way that may not be possible in a large, lecture-style course. The 2019 Outstanding Teaching Award recognizes a professor nominated by students for being an inspirational and engaging part of the honors experience. This year it was received by Professor Anna Maria Busse Berger from the Music Department.
