Honors International Impact

Honors College students have many opportunities to participate in study abroad courses and substantial international research and service programs.  As an Honors student, we hope the question is not “if you will study abroad,” but “where are you going to go?”  See where Honors students have been studying, researching, and serving in the interactive map below.

Delve deep into the Delta Blue

The Mississippi Blues Legends Festival at FGCU offers not just a chance to enjoy an outdoor concert of soul-stirring, hip-swaying music from the Deep South played by established artists from Clarksdale, Miss. Presented by the Honors College, it’s also an opportunity to learn — about the past and present of Delta blues and about the musicians keeping alive the tradition of sizzling slide guitars and passionate singing
