For Honors students, acceptance in the competitive program means access to smaller classes with special curriculum, a living-learning community in Shenandoah Hall, their own dedicated computing lab, study abroad opportunities and one-on-one faculty mentorship for their senior research project. Field trips, concerts, speakers and other special events round out the Honors experience to prepare students for graduate school or their future careers.
