WHAT WE OFFER
"Synergy is what happens when one plus one equals ten or a hundred or even a thousand! It's the profound result when two or more respectful human beings determine to go beyond their preconceived ideas to meet a great challenge." - Stephen Covey
In order to improve and become successful, we must understand that we need to challenge ourselves first. Only then, with like minded individuals alongside you, can challenges be found and faced. This leads to progress and improvement that might've been impossible otherwise.
The Honors Program provides a challenge along with helping you achieve things you never thought possible on your own.
Community & Friendship
Another great benefit of being part of the Honors Program is the sense of belonging to a tight-knit community that stays with you even after you graduate from LaGuardia.
Many of our previous HSAC students have become successful and have overcome tough challenges. Upon graduation, Honors students transferred to Stanford, Binghamton, Columbia, Cornell, Georgetown, Sarah Lawrence, Columbia, NYU, and other great universities. You, too, can become a success story!
LaGuardia Community College's 8 Jack Kent Cooke Undergraduate Transfer scholarship recipients have all been in the Honors Program.
In order to ensure success, you have to prove that you are better than the average student.
Being in the Honors Program shows everyone that you'll always exceed standards, and that you're able to accomplish tough tasks.
Talking with those who came before you is incredibly valuable because there is simply no reason for anyone to ever reinvent the wheel. Alumni can relate to the hopes, ambitions, and even anxieties of current students and are only happy to help whenever they are contacted. And it is because of the Honors Program that current students can connect with former ones with ease; HSAC provides a concrete forum for this kind of important networking.
