The Honors Program is an adventure! It is a fun and exciting journey that challenges students to be creative, curious and reflective. Honors students take on leadership roles, are part of a team of motivated learners, research topics in-depth and critically analyze the positions of others. In the Honors Program there are opportunities to make connections and receive mentoring from distinguished staff and faculty. Those who complete the Program are most likely to stand out and make a positive difference.

• provide novel learning experiences for high achieving students who are committed to excellence;

• to prepare students for transfer to four-year institutions.
