Why Honors?

At the Honors College, we create a community where motivated students learn and grow together. We provide students the best of both worlds—the personal support and advantages of a small liberal arts college together with the rich resources and diversity of a large metropolitan university.

In addition to the extensive amenities and practical facilities offered by the Honors College, there are many intangible benefits that accompany membership in the Honors community, such as lifetime friendships that develop from the classroom into other areas of student life, personal relationships with professors and mentors, and an open intellectual climate that encourages genuine engagement with many ideas and points-of-view. Honors College membership also offers each student an opportunity to be a part of a close-knit community by way of informal gatherings, social activities, and cultural events.
