The Honors community is for intellectually curious students seeking a fun campus experience while living among students with a shared interest in learning. Honors students interact closely with professors and peers in small, interdisciplinary seminars such as Medicine and Literature; Nature, Society, and Self; Culture, Identity, and Education; Myths, Monsters, and Metamorphoses; and Race: Reflection and Reality. Honors courses help students achieve the confidence that comes from honing their own ideas through writing and dialogue.
As a member of the Honors Community you can take your HON EYE course where you live and quickly become friends with other engaged students. Imagine knocking on a classmate’s door when you have a question or conversing over dinner about ideas sparked in class. Enrich your Honors experience in a friendly, open-minded environment where you can join in service activities, hang out with friends, or pursue your own passions.
