About the School
Please read a message from Dean Nancy Mezey to our students and alumni about the recent events in Washington, DC.
Students in the Honors School are part of a community of leaders and thinkers, where discussion and dialogue naturally occur within the classroom but also continue through extracurricular activities and off-campus events. These unique learning experiences highlight the many benefits of Honors School study.
Through the hard work and dedication of its community members, the school continues its mission to help students deepen their level of knowledge and global awareness. Students that complete the program are noted as graduates of the Honors School on their transcripts and diplomas, enhancing opportunities for graduate study and career placement.
