  The Honors Community

We believe that a successful Honor Program builds a supportive community for high-ability students. We build this community through

  • An active Honors Student Association 
  • A vibrant community service program
    We support community service and service-learning projects via the Honors Student Association. In 2019, Honors students served a total of 2,152 hours in our community. For the 2020-21 academic year, students are required to engage in at least twelve service events, including our signature Program events, such as Honors Ball, Symposium, and The Big Event.
  • Physical spaces such as our Honors Residence Hall and Lounge
  • Honors Classes 
  • Notation as Honors Program Graduate on diploma
  • Personalized advising
  • Early course registration
  • Peer mentoring
