Spotlight Questions:

What do you enjoy most about the Honors College?

What I enjoy most about the Honors College is being able to help other students with anything they might need, whether it be advice on how to balance academics with their personal lives, help on homework or tips on how to get more involved with clubs and extracurricular activities. I love this mainly because I remember how confused and scared I was my freshman year and how much I appreciated those who helped me get to where I am now.

What advice do you have for students interested in joining the Honors College?

To students who are considering joining the Honors College, I would definitely say to go for it. If you are already putting an incredible amount of effort into your studies, why not get honored for the academic excellence? Not only that, but one of the greatest perks of being in the Honors College is that students are exposed to unique opportunities that help give them the upper hand in their major.
