University Honors Program Recognition
Spires Undergraduate Research Journal
The University Honors Program publishes Spires, Mercer's undergraduate research journal. Honors students serve as the editorial board for the publication, charged with producing a student research journal of the highest order. From the first "Call for Abstracts," to the final decision regarding which research will be published in the journal, honors students are involved at each step.
The accomplishments of the University Honors Program students are celebrated in a variety of ways. Some have their research selected for publication in Spires. Others participate in the annual spring Undergraduate Research Symposium. Seniors in the University Honors Program are hosted each spring with a Senior Luncheon where graduating seniors receive their baccalaureate hood. University Honors Program graduates are the only Mercer undergraduates awarded a hood for wear at University Commencement.
