The Liberal Arts - Redefined

Interdisciplinary and experiential, the Honors Program offers unique courses and an enhanced Core Curriculum that blend the theoretical and the practical.  Encouraging academic exploration and independent thinking, the Honors Program can augment any program of study and expand the opportunities available to students.

A Path of Leadership

From a student’s first experiences at the Honors Retreat to acting as a mentor to other Honors students to planning University-wide events, the Honors Program offers countless opportunities for students to grow and be challenged as campus leaders.  Developing the skills and self-awareness necessary for leadership is one of the central commitments of the program.

Engaging the Whole Student

More than just an academic course of study, the Honors Program strives to develop the whole student.  We work to build lasting relationships among students and between students, faculty, and staff.  Committed to giving back to our community, the program encourages students to make use of their talents through service opportunities like tutoring refugees in English, organizing a campus coat-drive, and working with local non-profit organizations.
