Being in the Honors Program has increased my drive to do better in classes and think about college as a community. The resources that you get and the connections that you make in the Honors Program are valuable. My college experience wouldn’t be the same without it.

Joining the Honors Student Council was one of my highest accomplishments. Since then, I’ve established leadership qualities that I didn’t know that I had.

The Honors Program has opened my eyes to what ‘research’ really is.  I enjoy being in a challenging environment where people strive for intellectual accomplishment and are respectful of each other’s differences.
