The School creates a living and learning environment that centralizes Honors Scholars and other high achieving students with the goal of impacting the intellectualization of the entire campus and community.
The School of Honors seeks to meet twenty-first century challenges facing the College, the local community, the State, the Nation, and the World. The School of Honors' mission is to enhance intellectual, cultural, social, spiritual, global, and career opportunities for highly selected, motivated, enthusiastic and critically inquisitive students. The School of Honors attempts to achieve its mission by providing exceptional stimulation and challenges to the participants, thus expanding their global horizons and academic expectations.
Honors scholars are expected to study, conduct research, and participate in academically challenging experiences, domestic and international.
