Through the Honors College Monday Messages, I was introduced to the Dominican Republic Outreach Program (DROP). I now serve as the President for this service-based organization, and I couldn't be happier.

My favorite part of the Honors College so far has been the involvement as an Honors Ambassador. I  have served for two years, and I enjoy talking with prospective students at events like Eagle Expo and Say Yes to the Nest. I also have met other Honors students that share similar experiences as me, as an Honors Ambassador.

Major: Political Science and History '25
My favorite part about the Honors College has been the benefits that it brings to you. As a double major, the access to priority registration has allowed me to take awesome classes that otherwise would not have been available. As a result, I've been able to connect with several professors by working on Honors Contracts and Embedded courses while expanding my education.
Honors Ambassador Kendyl

Major: Nursing '25
My favorite part of the Honors College was my first year sequence course in Anatomy and Physiology I. I loved having a super small class size, getting to know my peers, and finding friends that have similar interests and career aspirations. I enjoyed being able to have a good relationship with my professors. It was a great introduction to FGCU and the Honors College.

I loved taking the Honors Standalone course, "What is an American," because it opened my eyes to many different cultures and perspectives and the Honors College is all about helping students become more well-rounded individuals. 
Honors Ambassador Madelyn

Major: English and Communication '24
I enjoy the different academic opportunities within the Honors College. There is something for everyone, regardless of major. As someone who enjoys creative writing, I love that students can create a film, short story, or play for an Honors Thesis. It's a great way to include everyone's academic background.

My favorite part of the Honors College is all of the leadership opportunities. Some of the first leadership experiences I  have at FGCU are Serving on the Honors Senate previously, and as a current Honors Ambassador. Both have helped me grow as a leader.
Honors Ambassador Michelle

Major: Political Science '23
My favorite part of the Honors College is the classes. I have taken a few Honors Embedded Courses, and I have been able to learn more about the subject through these opportunities. My International Relations course embedded project allowed me to focus on women in India and other parts of the world, helping women become education and active members of society.
Honors Amassador Ryan

Major: Secondary Math Education and Mathematics '23
My favorite part of the Honors College is the Honors Thesis. I just recently started the Honors Thesis process, and I was able to pick a topic I am personally interested in, that combines both of my majors and strengthens my knowledge in both fields.
