  • Enjoy a residential experience designed for honors college members
  • Develop relationships with students, staff, and faculty that facilitate learning beyond the classroom
  • Foster study groups and discussions regarding common classwork, readings, and events
  • Become knowledgeable about campus resources and services
  • Engage in campus activities and community events.
