Honors Experience

"Whether it's a late-night study session, a friendly game of indoor soccer, or just grabbing lunch in between classes, I find myself constantly surrounded by the many friends I have met through the honors program.

Honors sections have the benefit of small class sizes where everyone knows everyone and so it creates a very interactive atmosphere. I also love that I can always find a good study partner right before a big exam."
