Director's Welcome

Mari L. Nicholson-Preuss.jpg​As director of the University Honors often I am asked "What makes Honors special?" The answer is quite simple—its students. Honors students not only possess academic talent, but they are also creative thinkers with an exceptional curiosity for the world around them. They thrive in academic settings that delve deeper into the content and challenge preexisting ideas. In a nutshell, Honors students do not merely "think outside the box", they take the box apart, transform it into something new, turn it into a metaphor or debate whether or not the box exists.

The University Honors Program embraces the challenge of providing a supportive environment wherein highly motivated students can grow as scholars, leaders, innovators and citizens. Excellence is celebrated and horizons are broadened both inside and outside of the classroom.
