Our Community

Students learn the most from each other. And in Honors, we harness that in every way possible.

The life of an Honors student is a stimulating one. With so many opportunities at one’s fingertips— unique courses, global experiences, research/creative endeavors, and more— it’s great to have a core group of people to share these experiences with. In Honors, we help students to quickly build their social and intellectual networks by creating smaller communities, each composed of like-minded peers, faculty, and staff, who together make the university experience even more personal, connected, and fun.
