In addition to being part of a select community of like-minded scholars, the program offers courses that provide stimulating and challenging interactions with professors and peers. Classes are even smaller than non-honors courses and many are team-taught to provide unique interdisciplinary educational experiences unavailable elsewhere in the College.
The Honors Program supports student activities, including social events, seminars, and workshops. In addition, the Program supports scholarship through funding of student research presentations at national and regional conferences. Every semester, the Honors Program Council recognizes Honors students for their accomplishments through the Honors Program Outstanding Scholar Award.
Students are encouraged to participate in the design and path of the program through participation in the Honors and Scholars Council.
