Benefits of the Honors College
Students in the Honors College register for classes early each semester, which offers them a better chance to secure seats in popular courses at preferred times.
The Honors Advisor meets with students individually to help them plan for their Honors requirements efficiently and to ensure their timely graduation.
Honors students have the opportunity to take an Honors class in another country during interim (a three-week period after the regular semester).
Enrollment capacities in each Honors class are set between fifteen and twenty-four, which allows for significant discussion and interaction between professors and students.
Honors students take innovative, often team-taught seminars specially designed for Honors students.
The Honors community is a diverse, energetic group that plans social events, fundraisers, and service opportunities that are open to guests and to the larger community.
Honors students have the opportunity to work with a faculty member to develop an Honors Thesis on a topic of their choice. The Thesis is a two-semester research or creative project.
Honors students may choose to live on South Scott’s second floor, which provides a quiet environment for studying and daily interaction with other Honors students.
Graduating seniors who complete the Honors curriculum are recognized at a special awards ceremony prior to Commencement, and their transcripts also reflect this accomplishment.
