Students in discussion

The Honors Program offers robust programming and various ways for students to connect with each other, with faculty and with program alumni.




Connelly-Delouvrier International Scholars Program

Advances international study opportunities for undergraduate students by providing financial support for one academic semester of study abroad for select  academically talented students

Vocare Summer Fellows Program


Encourages students to explore work experiences that promote justice—environmental, racial, social, economic, etc.—and supports them through summer grants



Honors students have numerous opportunities to engage in leadership activities within the program. Students can begin participating in leadership as early as first year.


Peer Mentors

Peer Mentors guide other students, especially first-years and sophomores, through the registration process and become a resource for peers deciding on a major or help them plan their schedules for next semester.   

Each mentor is given a group of mentees, meeting with them regularly in the first year and later as needed. Students must be rising sophomores to apply; applications are generally solicited late in the spring semester.

Student Advisory Board

Help shape the Program’s future by providing feedback on your experiences and Honors’ programming. 

This board, which meets two to three times per year, is open to students in any college or year. Applications will open to first-year students early in the fall semester, and will include a résumé and letter of intent.
