Within the program students have created a learning community in which they are comfortable sharing ideas, exploring new topics and activities, and just having fun together. Read the March 2018 (PDF) and October 2018 (PDF) newsletters to get a sampling of what we do. And of course, discover more by looking at the other pages under this section.
One program we look forward to every spring is the annual Honors Symposium, where students present the results of their original research and creative projects. Subjects are diverse and range across many disciplines. In spring 2017 we heard about company branding, leadership lessons, and teaching for elementary school reading comprehension. Each year we have several biology and chemistry topics on view. The symposium is always free and the public is invited.
Recently we kicked off our Alumni Mentoring Network so that current students can gain from the life experience of our Honors alumni.
Many of our students study abroad and we encourage it by offering a competitive Honors Study Abroad Scholarship each year. We have our interested students work with the Study Abroad office from their first semester to identify and plan for an international experience.
