    A few of my favorite things about being in the Honors Program are the community and finding people around campus who are familiar faces as well as the leadership opportunities.

    One of my favorite things about my time in the Honors Program has been the discussions I get to have with all the friends I’ve made. We all come from different backgrounds but we’re also like-minded, so it’s a lot of fun altogether.

    My favorite part of the Honors Program is that it offers smaller class sizes. For me as an out-of-state student, it has been a lot easier finding community.
