I have loved the Honors courses. I wouldn't be the woman or student I am today, if it weren't for my participation in the Honors College.

...the Honors curriculum forced me to explore other disciplines that I normally would not have approached. Being so focused on working towards my goal of becoming a doctor while growing up had often led me astray in that I was sometimes ignorant of other subject areas and worldwide views. However, this curriculum allowed me to take classes outside my comfort zone and expand my knowledge to other disciplines.

As a member of the Honors College, I was able to interact with professors and study subjects I never expected to enjoy. I found a love for interactive studying and smaller class sizes. Students in the Honors College actually have the ability to share their voice in each class.
