The Honors Program encourages our scholars to participate in a broad array of cultural events during their undergraduate years. Every semester, Scholars are required to attend at least one on-campus cultural event that is approved by the Baruch College Honors Program. Scholars who study abroad for a full semester will be exempt from this requirement in the semester that they are abroad.
Students are encouraged to attend events sponsored by Baruch Performing Arts Center. See the Honors events page and below for Honors-sponsored cultural events, such as Friday Forays, which include trips to local museums and attractions!

Cultural Event Requirements for Scholar groups:
Baruch Scholars: waived during the first semester of their freshman year
Macaulay Scholars: waived during the first two years
Provost Scholars: one on-campus cultural event per semester
Guidelines for Documenting Cultural Events:
Students can document this requirement by submitting their ticket stub to the Honors Program front desk immediately after the event. Please note that for Baruch non-ticketed events not sponsored by the Honors Program, students should submit a short, one-page paragraph description of their thought of the event along with any other documentation (e.g. a program or playbill). On top of this page, please type your full name, event’s name, date and time. Non-ticketed events sponsored by the Honors Program will have a sign-in sheet.
This requirement must be completed and documented by the last day of class in the semester in which it is due. Scholars studying abroad for a full semester are exempt from this requirement in the semester they are abroad.
