The Honors College Experience
Many Honors College students soon discover that the liberal arts foundation they receive within the Honors College is instrumental in their major and minor classes. In the same way, Honors College alumni have noticed the impact their Honors College education has had on their post-graduate studies and professional work. Whether our students go on to continue their education in the legal or medical fields, to teach in the classroom, or to serve as administrators, their experience in the Honors College prepares them to accomplish any task.
