Impact and Outreach

Honors students are committed to giving back

Being an Honors student produces an impact that reaches far beyond the classroom. Our students actively seek opportunities to bring positive change locally, regionally and nationally. 

Opportunities to positively impact your community through service include: serving as an Student Senator on the Service Committee, partaking in a Service Experience, or taking a course focused on service-learning.
