University Honors Program

The University Honors Program provides high-achieving students with enhanced learning opportunities to stimulate their engagement and development, both within an intellectual community of scholars and as citizens of the wider university community and the world. The Honors minor curriculum provides students with special opportunities for interaction with faculty in thought-provoking seminars and intensive guided research, as well as experiential and service-learning projects.

Some of the benefits of the Honors Program include:

Scholarship Support: All members of the Honors Program are considered for merit-based scholarships. The exact amount of that scholarship depends upon a variety of criteria. The Honors Program also partners with other University units to offer students the best opportunities available.

Honors Program Curriculum: Designed primarily around a four-year interdisciplinary curriculum of small seminars and other experiences, the Honors Program expands a student’s intellectual breadth and develops skills in the expression of ideas, healthy criticism, and analysis.

Personalized Guidance: Honors Program students receive individualized guidance during their years at CSU Pueblo. However, students know that the more they invest themselves in the Honors experience, the more attention and guidance they’ll receive. The program staff encourages students to be proactive and make the best of the many opportunities provided.

Cultural and Social Activities: Field trips, guest lectures, special events, and recreational activities are planned independently or through other university programs, including lake kayaking or hiking in the Rocky Mountains, catching a movie or getting together at someone’s home, or cheering on classmates at soccer, football, or volleyball game! Don’t hesitate to suggest an activity! Honors Program students may also use the Honors Office Lounge in LARC 258 or the Honors floor lounge in Greenhorn Hall as informal places to gather for meetings, study groups, game nights, and other get-together.

Opportunity to Work Closely with Faculty: The Honors Program seminars allow students to form intellectually stimulating relationships with faculty members who are distinguished in their fields and at the university.  Research and creative activity are highly encouraged from the first semester, and the Honors Program curriculum culminates in a required year-long, faculty-mentored senior Honors thesis or project. 

Priority Housing: Students who receive a housing allowance through the Honors Program must reside on the Honors floor. Students have the option to live in Greenhorn Hall – the campus residence for most Honors college students. 

Interaction with Alumni: One of the most enduring aspects of participation in any Honors Program is the relationships made with other students. Continuing in this tradition, alumni of the Honors Program who wish to share their insight and experience are available as resources to current students.  We encourage this tradition to continue with each graduating class.
