Honors Alumni's Experiences


"The intellectual level of the discussions in Honors classes is amazing and I've learned so much! We also had special transfer workshops with directors of admissions of schools like NYU, Sarah Lawerence or City College who came to give us special advice on our transfer process. At the end of the semester, we had the chance to attend a recognition luncheon in our honor and I really felt that I was part of a community. 

- Harmonie Kobanghe, Liberal Arts Major



"The Honors Program presented me with oopportunities to challenge my intellect by engaging in valuable discussions with peers and academics who share the same passion for enlightenment. Graduating from the Honors Program not only reflects well, but is a testament of how hard I've worked, and how I am willing to take on challenges to excel in my career." 

Diana Youssef, Business Administration Major 



"One of the biggest advantages of being part of the Honors Program is having the opportunity to be in a classroom where every student is willing to learn rather than just pass the class. Consequently, class discussions become passionate conversations to find out facts; and here is where learning becomes fun!" 

- Maria Acosta, Business Major



"The Honors Program gives you a taste of a 4-year institution education. Don't kid yourself! Take on the challenge of a rigorous education and in the long run you'll be glad you did. You will find that you can take on the task. If you don't take a risk, that in itself is the biggest risk you'll ever take. 

- Keven G. Magana, Liberal Arts Major 



"An excellent way of improving the learning process is to surround yourself with highly intellectual and dynamic people. This is exactly what I found in an Honors class."

- Kamil Waliko, Business Major



"The professors in the Honors Program believe that diligence breeds results, and except nothing but rigor from their students. You are challenged to substantiate your opinions and engage in lively colloquy. Except nothing short of a transformative experience."

- Luis K. Feliz, Liberal Arts Honors
