Honors Program

Banquet and Forum

Banquet and Forum

Each spring, Honors Program members, their families and Roane State’s faculty and administrators are invited to a forum and banquet.  This event allows students to share honors projects completed during that academic year.  It also provides an opportunity for the Honors Program to celebrate its participants, especially those who are graduating.

There are two methods by which students can present projects at the forum:

1) A table presentation

Students discuss their project(s) with individuals and small groups.  A nearby computer might display a power point or video.  Posters, an experiment, written work, artwork, etc. can also be displayed on the table.

2) An oral presentation

Students present a project to the room as the visitors finish dessert.  Often a power point or video is displayed on a large screen.  These presentations must be limited to 7-10 minutes.

Why present?

The forum provides students an opportunity to share their enthusiasm and knowledge on a subject that is important to them.  It is also a chance to gain experience discussing academic and job-related subjects, a skill which will be essential during job interviews.  Participation in the Honors Forum should also be noted on a resume or application to a four-year university.
