On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, the University of West Georgia will hold its annual Honors Convocation at 5:30 PM at the Townsend Center for Performing Arts. This convocation 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. Each student has at least a 3.2 overall GPA, but that also fill disciplinary requirements. These are the best and brightest UWG students who are being honored by their faculty.
