The University Honors Program strives to make excellence a way of life!  There are a ton of opportunities for students enrolled in our program. Throughout the year, our students are encouraged to participate in conferences, research presentations, internships, mentoring, and many other academic and social opportunities. You can catch a glimpse of just some of the opportunities available on our MEMBER page.
