First-year Honors experience

Welcome to your new Honors community, where we cross boundaries — whether they're disciplinary boundaries, geographic boundaries, or boundaries of knowledge itself. 

That starts with curiosity. Your first year is all about exploring new ideas, so you'll have chances to immerse yourself in scholarship of every form!  

Honors housing community

Honors students get priority access to the housing community, which brings together driven students from all different backgrounds. It's more than staying up late sharing the world from new perspectives (but it's definitely that, too). 


Honors pods are the core of the Honors community: interdisciplinary working groups that shape and drive the Honors College. Find a pod that suits your interests! 

First-year seminars

Prepare yourself for independent research in these small, discussion-led courses.
