Do you know of a University Honors or Honors in the Major student doing great things? Have you recently received an award or recognition for something at FSU or in the community?


The Honors Program has a long history of providing recognition and support for outstanding students on campus. The Honors Program seeks to develop innovative thinkers who are socially responsible global citizens by attending to the needs of the whole student through integrated processes of student-focused pedagogy and curriculum, mentoring, and community engagement within and outside of the Honors Program. Each month, the Honors Program will recognize one exceptional honors student who has taken advantage of the opportunities presented to them and will highlight their noteworthy achievements and engagements. These students excel in their respective field and serve as role models for the Florida State community.
