The Honors College was like a second family to me. Everybody was really close.

Arti Patel

I’ve been able to build those connections with professors and talk with them one-on-one about class and my career. I loved having the opportunity to go to office hours for help with assignments and having them recognize me.

Chad Jamrock

The Honors College has given me an incredible opportunity to be more involved in the community and has allowed me to go to a bunch of great places.

I have friends in biology, nursing, English—people I wouldn’t have known at all if I weren’t in the Honors College.
