Get involved with the Honors College community

The Honors community is one of our greatest assets as a college. There are many ways to get involved, including Honors housing, leadership opportunities, and events. We're also very proud of the work our students are doing across campus and beyond; check out our Honors Stories page to see what the community has been involved with recently.

honors housing

There are two honors living-learning communities (LLCs), the Hillcrest Honors Community and the Honors Residential Commons. An Honors LLC is an academically passionate community where students can supplement their Honors experience with an active and robust intellectual community, while building relationships that last a lifetime.

The Honors College hosts regular events so that our community members have a place to gather and get to know one another. These include a biweekly community breakfast called Wake Up with Honors, an annual celebration of Honors graduates in the spring, and more.
