    Our Community

    The Honors community extends beyond the classroom. Throughout the year, Honors hosts dozens of events dedicated to making our program feel like home. These events include everything from casual movie nights to professional development to community service projects. Honors also sponsors an annual research symposium. There’s something for everyone.

    Meet Our Community

    The Honors Program has allowed me to take classes outside of my field of study—classes that have helped me find areas that truly spark my interest. Being able to step outside of my comfort zone has helped me prepare for graduate school, and the friendly community has offered me support throughout my time in the program.
