What our students say about the
Honors Program:

“Honors seminars gave me a never-ending desire to pursue the truth through constant questioning. And taught me that this truth, whatever it may be, might not be an absolute one, that it might shake the very foundations of my being and perceptions of the world, and that the opposite could also be true.”
-Kristine Bonnick ’11, Neuroscience Major
