Each semester, the Honors Residential College hosts a few small dinners for students to meet with exciting faculty members and guests. These intimate meals allow for discussion with great minds from a variety of fields. Past distinguished speakers include:
The Formation Series is the HRC's common conversation about what it means to be formed as a whole person by a Baylor education -- the fundamental commitment of our community. The Formation Series is one of the main ways our community comes together around the love of learning. Each fall and spring, the HRC hosts a series of three public lectures. Previous subjects have included ‘God Matters,’‘Friendship,’ and ‘The Works of C.S. Lewis.’ Taking part in a common conversation is an important component of any residential college, and we hope you will join us this year as we learn and grow together.
Honors Program students can satisfy some of their program requirements via the HRC Formation Series. To successfully earn an Honors Unit for participating in the Formation Series, students must attend two of the three Formation Series events each semester and write a critical reflection over one of the events each semester. Half an Honors Unit can be earned by fulfilling the requirements for one semester; a whole Unit can be earned by fulfilling the requirements for two semesters.
Critical Reflection Submission Process (download the instructions here):
1.Your reflection will be due a week following the date of the lecture.

*The formation series can count for an upper or lower level unit.
Shared conversation continues at Discussion Clubs and Study Nights. At Discusssion Clubs, students come together to discuss current events, relevant issues, and important subjects. Students will often gather to discuss following a major university or world event or after a Formation Series lecture. Study Nights connect the classroom and the community, as students gather over cereal in the Memorial Dining Hall to work on homework and study alongside friends.
