The Honors College is an academic unit offering classes and experiences designed to enrich students’ education. As members of this college, students participate in a core of small and powerful classes, taught by faculty selected for their expertise and devotion to academic excellence.

Benefits of being an Honors student are many, and include a dynamic classroom environment; a vibrant community of peers; supportive faculty mentors; interdisciplinary courses that feature exciting perspectives on world events, culture, and history; high-powered experiential learning, including undergraduate research and internships; scholarly travel and field trips in the United States and abroad; special assistance with scholarships and job opportunities; priority registration; and honors housing.
