From academic excellence to social responsibility, the Honors College cultivates the next generation of leaders and thinkers.
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.
The Honors College is an amazing community with students from various majors and backgrounds! With opportunities such as student research to social and volunteering events, there are always new and exciting experiences to have and great people to meet!
I chose PNW because of the challenging academics. It’s also close to home, the environment is welcoming, and they’re part of NCAA Division II Athletics.
From peer mentoring to research opportunities, see how Honors College prepares you to excel.
Our learner-centered courses emphasize critical thinking and conceptual, discussion-based learning.
Meet the faculty and staff who will work with you to create an experience that meets your needs.
