NCHA Conference 2015: Asheville, NC

The conference to attend when you’re an Honors student in NC! We traveled to beautiful, cool, and very laid-back Asheville and caught some mountain and city views before strolling through the Goombay Festival. The conference, hosted by our friends at UNC Asheville, kicked off with a delicious dinner and ended with students presenting problems to a real-world problem. asheville hotel garden

Honors Trip Spring 2015: Washington, DC

Headed north on I-95 until we reached the capital. Culinary explorers, we traveled the city day and night, on foot and by metro, enjoying Ethiopian, Chinese, and Indian cuisine. Soaked up even more culture at art museums, the National Mall, and in Georgetown, with the occasional cupcake break. all dressed up group before fountain
