One of the most intriguing benefits of the Honors program is the availability of small seminar classes of 15-18 students. These classes facilitate strong student/faculty interactions, are interdisciplinary in focus, and incorporate experiential learning activities.

Additional benefits include:

  1. The Honors Student Organization sponsors activities such as a Fall retreat on Lake Superior (Vermillion field station), dinner with a professor, movie nights, mentoring, Slendertag, Relay for Life, etc.
  2. Honors students have opportunities to present at state, regional and national honors conferences.
  3. Other benefits to Honors students include early scheduling of classes (on the first day of scheduling-same as seniors), advising from the Honors Director (in addition to regular academic advising), and the option of living in Ontario Hall (the “Honors house”).
  4. Honors students receive a University Honors Degree upon graduation; all 18 Honors credits are noted as such on the student’s transcript.
  5. Honors Program graduates receive an Honors stole to wear at commencement in recognition of their achievements.
  6. After graduation, letters of recommendation from the Honors Program Director and Honors Council will help you gain fulfilling employment or admission into law, medical, or graduate school.
