Honors Scholar Program

Incoming Students

The Honors Scholar Program invites applications from students who wish to explore the wide array of intellectual traditions and research methods that define a liberal arts education. Honors Scholars have access to a broad slate of multidisciplinary courses and multicultural co-curricular activities. They are among the first students to register for courses each semester, ensuring schedules that facilitate their studies and interests. In addition, they receive priority housing in Finch Hall, located on the Kester International Promenade, in the heart of campus.

How do you know the Honors Scholar Program is for you?

  • One of your core beliefs is “Education should empower students to change the world.”
  • You learn best when you are engaged in hands-on projects. Research and collaboration do not scare you.
  • Challenges and even failures help you learn. You don’t give up easily.
  • You enjoy interactive class discussions and activities. Debates and deep conversations are fun!
  • A community of scholars would motivate you to expand your thinking.
  • You enjoy connecting ideas from one class to another.
  • Learning is something that happens all the time for you, not just in the classroom.
