Student Features

This was the most genuine, unpretentious place I visited. The students were friendly, the staff was gracious, the building was beautiful…. This is not a perfect program or a perfect school, but it is certainly one that is trying to be. And that's worth a lot, all by itself.

Who We Are

We are philosophers, artists, and athletes… musicians, soldiers, and writers… adventurers and students. We've traveled from around the world and just down the street. As members of the Honors College, we come to discuss, experiment, discover and learn. From Greeks to university senators… band to rugby… debates to poetry… we are a community of scholars, and we invite you to discover us.

We're an extremely diverse group with different opinions, interests, and likes and dislikes -- but all with a common thread. We love to learn, we love to question what other people take as a "given."' Here you will feel welcome because of this, not in spite of it. We are truly a community of scholars.
