Honors students are looking for a challenging, enriching curriculum that will prepare them for excellent careers, graduate school, and/or professional programs. Our program offers small, seminar-sized classes and team taught courses, which encourage critical thinking and thoughtful discussion. The Honors faculty members are among the best on campus, and they are in a good position to write strong letters of recommendation for seniors. Further, the Honors Program publishes the best work of its seniors, a distinction that contributes mightily to a solid resume.
Additionally, Honors students have early registration, which is based on the number of units students have completed. This provides flexibility in creating schedules. Honors students also receive special recognition at Commencement. They wear the Honors gold stole, sit in the front row, and have their names read first at the ceremony.
