What Honors Program Students Say

"I have really enjoyed meeting so many people with completely different views. Courses are big on dialogue, and it makes discussions exciting and expands my knowledge. I have loved learning from them."
— Meghan, Health Sciences major

"My first semester I had no problem being a part of the Honors Program, member of the baseball team, and a member of the Student Government. College is all about time management and the Honors Program is definitely worth the time."
— Daniel, Sport Management major

"The Honors Program offers opportunities other students do not often get. I was able to go to an all expenses paid conference in Gettysburg and network with a variety of students from all over the east coast. I would not have had that opportunity otherwise."
— Spencer, Communication and Radio and TV Production major
