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.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Sarah Filipski, and this is my third year as a Student Associate Director for the Global Honors Program. I am a senior studying Health Science, Pre-Physical Therapy with a minor in Dance. On day one of my freshman year, I found myself falling in love with all things Honors. I loved the staff, the students, the activities, and especially the Honors House! As much as I adored the program, however, I was reluctant to take on such a large leadership role. Looking back, I would be devastated if I hadn't applied for the SAD position. Because of the Honors Program, I have grown into a far better leader than I ever expected. My first year as a SAD tested me in ways that words cannot describe, and I look forward to all the challenges it has left to offer me. My goal for the Honors Program is to keep students' eyes open to new ideas and experiences that happen around them on a daily basis here in Lock Haven. I hope that all students accepted into the Program feel the same sense of family that I have received from the first day of my freshman year because that is something that everyone deserves to have.

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! 

Have a great semester!
