What Students Have to Say About the Honors College Experience...

"One of my favorite things about the Honors College is that it is an interdisciplinary college. The added insight a student gets from working with other students, professors, and staff from different areas of study is really an education of its own." 

-Meagan Henry, Honors College Alumna & BBA in Economics, 2009; In country operations manager for The Burma Connection in Myanmar

"I love how the small nature of the classes allows you to get to know a professor better and explore the subjects of the class more closely."

-Christian Penichet-Paul, Honors Student, Senior History Major, BA in History and Political Science, Spring 2013

"Joining the Honors College has afforded me many valuable opportunities to conduct independent research and share my findings with a broader audience. I would strongly encourage all honors students to enroll in an independent study course or write an honors thesis. The experience, though challenging, transformed me into a better writer, a more meticulous researcher, and a more perceptive critical thinker." 

-Elliott Brandsma, Honors Alumnus, BA in English & Art, Spring 2013; Awarded a Fulbright to Iceland

"Being part of the Honors College community has impacted me not only on an academic level; Honors has also helped me to establish an identity within a sea of students! The experiences here at Honors have played a pivotal role in helping me discover who I am, providing me with a new outlook everyday." 

-Zoha Shafiq, Honors Student, Junior Communication Design Major, Anticipated Graduation Date: Fall 2014
