Honors, the place to make a difference

Opportunities and Research

University Honors is centralized around getting the most out of your college experience, inside the classroom and out. As part of our commitment to learning, we encourage all honors students to get involved with academic opportunities outside of the classroom.

Academic Opportunities

There are a plethora of extra academic opportunities available for honors students, from education abroad to studying in our nation’s capital as an intern in a congressperson’s office. Honors students have an added advantage in getting into scholastic honors societies and finding research positions as an undergraduate.
