Your Hendrix Odyssey: Engaging in Active Learning

Your Hendrix Odyssey

You  learn more when you do more. That's the educational philosophy behind Your Hendrix Odyssey, an exciting component to our curriculum.

With six categories and plenty of flexibility, the Odyssey Program encourages all Hendrix students to embark on educational adventures that are personalized to their own interests and abilities.

In order to graduate, a student must complete at least three Odyssey experiences covering three different categories. There are three ways of earning Odyssey credits.

  • Individually-Designed Projects. Design and propose your own Odyssey experience.
  • Pre-Approved Activities. Engage in one of the co-curricular activities listed below.
  • Odyssey-Coded Academic Courses. Enroll in courses coded for Odyssey listed below.
