Honors House System

The Honors House system was implemented in the fall semester of 2015 to create a community of scholars in the Honors College. The Honors Houses provide the students an opportunity to get connected to and interact with each other outside of classrooms. Incoming Honors students will be assigned to one of four Houses at the time of entrance. The four Houses were named after the four best-known native trees in New Mexico: Aspen, Juniper, Oak, and Piñon. Students are sorted upon entering the Honors College.

Congratulations to the Inaugural House CUP Winner, House Piñon!

Each House elects five House members to serve on the House Council at the beginning of the fall semester. The Council, governed by a set of by-laws, is responsible for leading House activities and motivating member’s involvement. The Houses compete for points during the academic year.
