From academic excellence to social responsibility, the Honors College cultivates the next generation of leaders and thinkers.
The Honors College is excited to announce that Aneri Patel has been selected president of the Honors College Student Advisory Board for the 2021-22 academic year.
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.
The community you get to be a part of when joining the Honors College was and still is definitely the biggest benefit to me. The friendships and connections I formed through the Honors College shaped my entire college experience.
