Testimonials from Honors students

Matthew Manotti: "The Honors Program is specifically designed for students who enjoy their job: being a student. If you love to learn for learning's sake, you belong here."

Christine Mackey: "The classes have been by far the most rewarding I have taken. They are taught in such a different style that not only does it make you think, but it also engages you and captures your attention. You don't have to be super-smart either, just have an open mind and an eagerness to learn."
