The Honors College is home to many intellectually talented and motivated students and provides the intimacy of a small, liberal arts education within a large, comprehensive university. Honors students are offered educational and cultural experiences through challenging courses and extra-curricular activities that encourage scholarly curiosity, leadership, civic engagement, and diversity. The Honors College provides undergraduate students opportunities for a wide range of experiences that aid in developing student’s appreciation for creativity, the arts, sciences, critical issues facing contemporary society, and diversity among people and their cultures.
