Honors

Brazil

The Honors LLC is an interdisciplinary community that allows Honors Scholars to extend and enhance their learning beyond the classroom through trips, dinners, and special events. Founded on the idea that some of the most important interactions a student has with professors and fellow students occur outside of the classroom, the LLC is committed to providing opportunities for these encounters take place. This community is open to students once they are admitted to the Honors College. 

The Honors College houses two sequential academic programs (Honors Foundations and Upper Division Honors) as well as offices that serve all students across campus; the ASPIRE office, the Office of Undergraduate Research, and the Pre-Health Professional Development office.
