The Formation Series is an opportunity to discuss what it means to be formed as a whole person, in heart, soul, mind and strength - the fundamental commitment of our community. The Formation Series brings our community together around the love of learning. Each fall and spring, the HRC hosts 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.
Co-sponsored by Baylor's Institute for Faith and Learning, this event brings together an interdisciplinary group of professors from across the university to discuss the impact of their faith on their calling. An alternative texture to traditional lectures, this informal conversation series draws on the wisdom of the panel to illuminate ways that God has worked in their lives.
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:
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.
