Sponsored by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, the yearly X-Square competition challenges student teams to transform an unexceptional courtyard into an attractive gathering space. The courtyard sits in the middle of Herberger’s turf on the northern end of campus.
Perhaps the most intellectually fulfilling exercise in the honors experience at ASU is the honors thesis or creative project. The newly integrated Design School in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts has specific options for each of our disciplines. We have streamlined the requirements for Honors Thesis so that any Honors Student who wants to graduate with Honors has enough time to meet the rigorous requirements of both studio and the thesis. You no longer will do both Senior studio and a separate thesis. The two are integrated and meet the requirements of both your discipline and the Honor College.
