Why is the Honors Program Special?
Be an Academic Warrior
When you transfer to a four-year college, you will "stand out from the crowd" because you took Honors classes and participated in the Honors Program. Honors Program students challenge exceptations and push past boundaries to achieve their dreams. Your status as an Honors Program student proclaims your perseverance, your love of knowledge and learning, and your commitment to personal and academic excellence to future professors and to your eventual employers.
Your participation in the Program provides you with access to faculty, alumni and peer networks for your transfer applications, academic aid and scholarship opportunities.
Dare to Do More
Through the Honors Student Advisory Committee (HSAC), you will be exposed to scholarly, leadership and civic engagement opportunities. You will have the chance to prepare research projects to present at local, regional and national Honors conferences.
