Distinction

Honors Program students are distinguished in a number of ways including:

  • Honors Program is noted on your Degree Audit Report (DAR), your official transcripts, and in the commencement program when you graduate.
  • You are awarded the Honors golden stole to wear as part of their regalia at commencement.
  • You are invited to exclusive program activities including a presidential reception and graduation banquet.

Learning Community

Recognizing that Honors students get re-energized by exchanging ideas and debating with each other, the Honors Program fosters a close-knit community of learners. For that reason, we strongly recommend first-year Honors students live with other Honors students in the Honors Learning Community.
