Well, here's what real Honors Students have to say:
"The Honors Program is not an assembly of "the smart kids," a line on your transcript, or a compilation of easily-forgotten lectures your parents will be pleased you attended. Honors students do not measure success purely by grades and accolades, but by days well-lived.
"The Honors Program is unique classes, engaging faculty, lunches with foreign diplomats, and unforgettable late-night conversations over pizza. It is a philosophy of living that emphasizes leadership, passion for learning, and the search for surprising and meaningful relationships. Through academic engagement and expansion of cultural knowledge, the Honors Program cultivates well-rounded individuals who become leaders on this campus and beyond. "
