What our students have to say...
I had a great experience in the University Honors Program. Where else can you spend a day hiking and fishing and then talk about philosophy around a campfire? The courses were excellent. Although outside my field, I especially enjoyed a course on “Environmental Law.”—Jennifer Lynn '05
