Honors Components

In addition to four Honors Courses, each year, students work with a professor to customize a project in one of their regular courses to convert that course into an "Honors Component."

Students work with their professors to customize their projects, tailoring them to their interests, goals or needs. Each Honors Component may be designed to deepen knowledge of course subject matter, to apply subject matter of the course to the student's major or career goals, or to sharpen skills the student would like to hone.

Typically students will undertake Honors Components in the semesters they are not taking an Honor Course. Two Components must be in courses at the 200 level or above. Guidelines and sample Components are available from the Honors Director.

President Alexander Responds to the Tragedy in Orlando  Thursday, June 16, 2016We the people of the United States cherish our freedoms. Whether it be the freedom to say what we want, to assemble in groups of our choosing, to follow the religions of our choice, to vote as our conscience demands, to own and carry weapons, to start new businesses and make money, and to move about as we please -- these are values we hold dear and are reluctant to compromise.
