Dr. Amy E. Story
Honors Program Director
"What I've learned through the Honors Program goes far beyond the scope of a classroom. From trips to Cleveland to personal reflections, I've learned so much about the world and myself that helps me to be a better version of who I was going into college."

Interdisciplinary and experiential, the Honors Program offers unique courses and an enhanced Core Curriculum that blend the theoretical and the practical. Encouraging academic exploration and independent thinking, the Honors Program can augment any program of study and expand the opportunities available to students.
A Path of Leadership
From a student’s first experiences at the Honors Retreat to acting as a mentor to other Honors students to planning University-wide events, the Honors Program offers countless opportunities for students to grow and be challenged as campus leaders. Developing the skills and self-awareness necessary for leadership is one of the central commitments of the program.
Engaging the Whole Student
More than just an academic course of study, the Honors Program strives to develop the whole student. We work to build lasting relationships among students and between students, faculty, and staff. Committed to giving back to our community, the program encourages students to make use of their talents through service opportunities like tutoring refugees in English, organizing a campus coat-drive, and working with local non-profit organizations.
