“I remember the first time I had a major assignment due the next day. That night, the main lobby in Finch was full of honors students working on the same assignment, and I realized that the honors program is like a family.”

“There is something about taking such unique classes with a cohort of lifelong friends that makes the college experience so extraordinary. We all get to challenge and grow off of each other while having a lot of fun along the way!”

Emmie D’Amico
Pittsburgh, PA
Theatre and English Literature

“In my immersive theatre class, everyone came fully prepared for each other’s presentations. Their grade wouldn’t be affected if they hadn’t, but we were interested in each other’s experiments because they were good theatre. And because we had become real friends over the semester and wanted to see each other do well.”

“Joining the Honors Scholar Program is absolutely the best choice I made when enrolling at HPU. Living and learning alongside my Honors peers adds an extra sense of warmth at my home away from home.”

“Even though I joined the Honors program in the middle of my first year, I appreciate all the honors students that welcomed me in. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from any of my Honors classes, it’s that there is always a method to the madness.”

“Getting opportunities such as traveling for research, writing a newsletter in the process of being published, and working with faculty who are leaders in their field. Living, learning, and having fun together has given me lifelong friends I otherwise may not have met!”

“I am so grateful to be in HPU’s Honors Program. My honors classes have challenged me academically to push past my limits and inspired me to see the world as a bigger and brighter place. I love my professors who share so much wisdom and are always available to help me with whatever I may need. Living in Finch Hall and attending classes with my like-minded peers has also given me the opportunity to make lifelong friends!”

“From game night to colloquium, the honors program has ensured that my college experience is one to remember for the rest of my life! Because we do everything together, the honors program really feels like a family (also story time with milk & cookies is a plus).”

“My first honors class, Math of Democracy, was also my first B. An 89.3, so close! I begged for extra credit, but my honors professor quickly reminded me what is important:  “Abigail, you have learned so much and come so far, you don’t need a perfect A for that to be true.” That is what the Honors Program is about: expanding  your knowledge, diving deep into topics, and not steering away from a challenge because it might result in less than an A.”

“Living in Finch has fostered a lifelong community in my personal and academic life. I’m so blessed to be a part of the supportive family that is the Honors Program!”

“Living in Finch has allowed me to get to know my peers both inside and outside of the classroom setting. Through common room movie nights, lobby taco parties, and class discussions, I have made memories with so many incredible people!”
