Students should consider applying to the Honors Program if they are stimulated by ideas, tend to be skeptical of definitive answers or easy solutions, and are pursuing an education, not just a degree. If accepted, Honors Program students will find themselves in an intellectual peer group with a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
