Academic Honors Convocation
Each year, the University of West Georgia holds its annual Honors Convocation to honors students who have demonstrated outstanding scholastic achievement.
For over five decades, West Georgia has recognized the achievements of its superior students at Honors Convocation. Students are selected for awards by the faculty in their disciplines. They must possess at least a 3.2 overall GPA and fulfill all additional departmental requirements to be chosen. These are the best and brightest UWG students who are being honored by their faculty.
The 2022 Honors Convocation will be held on Tuesday, April 5, from 5:30pm-7:00pm at the Townsend Center for Performing Arts.
