From academic excellence to social responsibility, the Honors College cultivates the next generation of leaders and thinkers.
The Honors College was like a second family to me. Everybody was really close.
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.
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!
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.
