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:
- 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.
- Honors students have opportunities to present at state, regional and national honors conferences.
- 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”).
- Honors students receive a University Honors Degree upon graduation; all 18 Honors credits are noted as such on the student’s transcript.
- Honors Program graduates receive an Honors stole to wear at commencement in recognition of their achievements.
- 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.
