The college allows its students to design an engaging collegiate experience that takes learning to a new level. As an Honors student, you will have access to:

  • Study Abroad—gain a global perspective in and beyond your discipline by utilizing honors designated scholarships to help defray expenses
  • Honors Seminars and Enrichment Courses—experience cultural, social, and interdisciplinary events to connect with other honor students outside your discipline
  • Honoris Causa Membership—join with other honors students in developing projects to serve our campus and community, while maintaining a forum for discussing current campus events and honors course offerings
  • Academic Engagement and Undergraduate Research and Publication Opportunities—develop research or creative projects in your favorite courses under the guidance of specialized faculty mentors
  • Career Advancement—mentors and designated honors advisors help you build a portfolio of internships, conferences, and research experiences
