Global Honors Program Prospective Students

Please take the time to browse all of the amazing opportunities our program offers. I sincerely hope you will consider applying. 

The application process is really simple, so don’t be intimidated.  A completed application includes a coversheet (found on our website), a list of significant activities you have participated in, a brief essay, an application interview (conducted by a current student), and two letters of recommendation from your teachers.  That’s it! 

There are so many things to gain by participating in Honors!  First of all, the friends you make in the program are unbelievable, and the group meetings each week are a lot of fun as well.  The Honors Program strives to help you build new relationships, make the transition to college life, and enhance your college experience while you pursue academic excellence.

I’d like to tell you a little bit about my experience with Honors. I decided to apply to the honors program after browsing the website and seeing the opportunities to become involved and challenge myself academically. After coming to campus for an interview, I was completely convinced that this would be my new home, and I was absolutely correct. Every day, I am grateful for the lessons and opportunities that are presented to me in the program. Our program highly values academics, community, and leadership, but the friendships you make here are just as important. 

Applying to the Honors Program is probably one of the greatest choices you’ll make throughout your college experience.  If you have any questions about the application process, the program in general, or would like to hear more about my experience, please feel free to contact me at
