The Honors College is a diverse living and learning community of gifted scholars, experienced advisors and committed faculty for the student who craves a challenge and wishes to do more with his/her education. We provide the experience of a small liberal arts college backed by the intellectual resources of a major research university to deliver a dynamic curriculum that moves far beyond the classroom.
The curriculum expands across a student’s undergraduate career. In the first year, Honors Colloquium
provides a venue for service learning and civic engagement while Honors seminars provide a small, intimate
setting for meaningful faculty-student interaction and rich discussion. As students are encouraged to
engage in rigorous coursework within and outside of their major and engage in research, internships, and study abroad. This
curriculum is meant to provide students with transformative experiences that will hopefully lead them to
future career aspirations.
