Current Global Honors Students

Welcome to the Lock Haven University Global Honors Program! Here at Lock Haven, the usual perception of an Honors Program is completely redefined by the unique foundations from which our program was built. We offer our students an excellent academic program along with an extra-curricular aspect that drives our program to the next level. We strive to create a comforting environment within the program that allows for a family-like atmosphere. This is accomplished through another rare characteristic in our program, the student leadership. For the most part, this Global Honors Program is run by students for students in various leadership roles. Do you have any questions about the GHP? Well, you're in luck! Everything an Honors student may need can be found somewhere on this website. Group meeting times, graduation credentials, and offered Honors classes are just a few handy things the website holds. If you are not looking for anything in particular, there are plenty of photos of our students participating in exhilarating activities for you to check out! If you are looking to become more involved in the program by joining the Admissions Team, contributing to the Honors newsletter, leading an Activity Group, or even leading a Freshman Development Group, this website is the place to be! If you need it, you can be sure you will find it here on the Honors website.

My name is Rachael Metzinger, and I am one of three Student Associate Directors (SADs) for the GHP!  I am a Psychology major with a minor in Special Education, but that can change at a moment’s notice.  I personally felt very homesick when I came to college, and I wasn’t sure that an Honors Program would be of any interest to me. I’m happy to say that I was very wrong indeed.  The Global Honors Program isn’t just something I can write on a resume, it completely changed how I was adjusting to college life.  The people in the program have become my second family, and the Honors House is my home away from home.  I am fortunate to be able to have a leadership position where I can impact the program and help it grow. 

Take some time to check out our website. There are a lot of valuable resources here to help you find everything you need in regards to all things Honors!

I hope you take advantage of all the opportunities available for you through the Global Honors Program. If you ever have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email us at and we will be more than happy to help!
