About Us

Established in 1984, the Muriel A. Howard Honors Program currently enrolls over 550 students. Those who enroll understand that although they are expected to work hard, they are rewarded with opportunities for applied internships, scholarships, research, and bright futures.

The dynamic, customized curriculum allows students to choose unique seminar courses that best fit their academic goals and enhance their post-college plans. Honors courses are offered as small sections by dedicated, highly qualified faculty members.

Priority registration, co-curricular and social activities, and leadership opportunities are benefits of being in the Honors program. Students have priority housing in Bishop Hall, a residence hall for high achieving students, which also houses an honors-only classroom and exclusive study spaces. Honors students have access to a dedicated computer/printing lab and study suite ideal for connecting with other students and participating in Honors activities. Scholarships are offered to many incoming honors students and other scholarships are available by application.
