Students enjoy unique experience in research, leadership, mentoring and studying abroad. This intense focus makes them outstanding candidates for graduate school and the workforce.
The peer mentoring program drives college success by connecting incoming freshmen with current Honors College students months before they arrive at the university.
Upper-class students in Honors College may apply to be teaching assistants (TAs) and work with new students in introductory courses.
Typically reserved for graduate students, this exclusive opportunity helps TAs gain valuable experience developing course lessons, leading class sessions and tutoring freshmen. Students, in turn, benefit from having fellow students they can turn to for information and guidance.
Students have the opportunity for one-on-one research with faculty in your degree program by completing Honors contract course research projects with the Honors College. You can take courses that interest you, complete intriguing research and gain real-world experience that will help you in the job market!
Our students have won awards at Days of Discovery, presented research at national conferences, and had their work published in undergraduate research journals.
