Honors Retreat
August 29th and 30th 2014

Incoming freshmen are invited to attend a two-day overnight trip to Prescott Pines. We stay at the camp and get to know each other better through fun activities. To sign up we have an application in the honors office and the cost to attend is $25. Pay the fee at the fiscal office and bring the receipt and application to the honors office. We are looking forward to seeing you there, it will be a blast.

Honors Explorer Classes


Spend three days exploring northern Arizona with the PVCC honors program! We visit Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments, and learn about Arizona's recent volcanic history and its impact on prehistoric cultures. After spending the night on the rim, we hike into Grand Canyon. The hike is strenuous. Students need to be physically prepared. On the hike we go over the basics of Grand Canyon geology and explore in more detail how the canyon formed.

Join the PVCC Honors Program and professor Jenny N. Weitz as we travel to Flagstaff to explore historic Lowell Observatory, discover the telescopes used for education at NAU, and get hands on with our own telescopes while camping under the stars. No previous astronomy experience is required.These classes provide opportunities for students to explore subjects without the stress of a 3 credit class. Additionally, students get to work in a small group setting with professors in a specific area.
