What is your favorite thing about Honors? The Honors courses, which
are not designed to be harder, just different. The 25-person cap
changes the dynamic of the class, and the students you learn
alongside usually have a genuine appreciation for the subject matter.
Every Honors professor I’ve had has done an outstanding job and
epitomized the mission of the Honors College.

What is your favorite thing about Honors? In my Honors
classes I see students who are willing to go the extra
mile to expand their knowledge, even when it is not
required. I know many who have taken classes just
because they seem interesting, not because they can be
used to fulfill a requirement. This mindset is one of
the greatest strengths of the Honors College.

What is your favorite thing about Honors? I love the “small-school” feel of
Honors. Despite attending a university with 26,000 undergraduate students, I
am personally acquainted with the staff, faculty, and students of the College.
The free printing and food at the Honors College doesn’t hurt either! ;)
