Honors Scholar Program – Exclusives & Opportunities
Many students that participate in the Honors Scholar Program are offered the opportunity to research with professors that publish in their respective fields of study. This rare chance (which is usually only offered to graduate students at other institutions) is a perfect foundation for honors students who are planning to pursue a graduate degree.
The Honors Scholar Program regularly invites and sponsors renowned scholars to speak at High Point University on a variety of topics.
Honors Day Symposium:
The Honors Day Symposium is an opportunity for students to highlight their research projects through public presentation. It is organized as an interdisciplinary undergraduate research conference. Held annually on Honors Day during the spring semester, honors students present their research topics and conclusions in front of a gathering of faculty and students.
Scholarship for Rising Seniors:
The Honors Scholar Program awards one annual scholarship to the rising senior with the highest GPA in the program. The student must also exhibit extraordinary student leadership and be an active member of the Odyssey Club.
Honors Scholar Program students are provided the opportunity to select their courses during registration periods before non-honors students. This allows honors students the flexibility to take honors classes offered that particular semester and to create a academic schedule conducive to their learning style.
Extended Library Borrowing Privileges:
The High Point University library allows honors students enhanced borrowing privileges by allowing them access to non-circulated DVDs and extended check-out time for books.
Honors Living Community in York Hall:
Students in the Honors Scholar Program at High Point University have the opportunity to live with fellow honors students in York Residence Hall. More information can be found on the Honors Living Community page.
“The Honors Scholar Program at High Point University is designed to stimulate and challenge exceptional students while providing them with additional opportunities to excel. The program facilitates increased interaction with faculty and participation in undergraduate research, thereby enhancing their overall learning experience while making them more attractive to graduate and professional programs.
