What is Honors?
The Honors Program serves motivated, accomplished students by nurturing creativity, critical thinking, and scholarship beyond the usual academic frameworks. Through classes, co-curricular activities, service projects, and advisement, the Honors Program creates a learning community that emphasizes intellectual exploration.
BEST of both worlds
Enjoy the benefits of a small liberal arts college within a large research university. Built around your interests, Honors immerses you in a stimulating and exciting learning community, which enhances your development in and out of the classroom. Plus, you can combine Honors with any major on
campus, or create your own program of study.
the defining DIFFERENCE
Experience an exclusive program where you'll ponder the "big questions" in life that will spark your thinking and nurture your creativity through:
- Intriguing courses
- Cultural experiences
- Community involvement
- Thought-provoking discussions
- Intimate class settings
- Travel abroad opportunities
- Leadership development
- Research opportunities
Enjoy a built-in community of peers who have broad interests, like to think, learn, and are motivated – just like you. You'll learn together, work together, play together, and develop lifelong friendships.
Plus, they're always up for a good conversation!
You'll have the unique opportunity of living together in the Honors Living & Learning Community residence hall where you can share experiences and be involved in special Honors programming.
Honors Living & Learning Community
