Programs & Organizations

The Honors College looks to support its students however possible.

Providing programs and organizations through the college and its partners is just one of the ways that the Honors College shows up for the success of its students.

At the Honors College, we want students to take intellectual risks, make discoveries, explore the world around them, participate in exciting cutting-edge research projects, engage in community-based learning, and find their passions.
