Why Honors?


Beyond the most obvious benefits (a liberal arts education, early enrollment, scholarship opportunities, Honors on your transcript, etc.), Honors provides many intangibles. The most important of these is that it exposes you to many of the brightest, most interesting students at FGCU. These are people with whom you will establish lifelong friendships and connections.

An honors education will also expose you to many sides of the university that most students never see. Do you want to be involved in laboratory research? Have dinner with a famous philosopher? Become an ambassador for your university? Honors can provide all of that and more.

At FGCU, Honors is small, close-knit community within the larger university. From move-in day at the Freshman Residential Community to our graduation weekend Cording Ceremony, Honors surrounds you with a community that values excellence and achievement.
