GRADUATING SENIORS:  schedule your Honors exit interview meeting now!  You may request an appointment by sending Dr. Barnes three possible times when you and your faculty mentor are available.  Beat the rush and reserve your spot for early in the semester.  Read about how to prepare for your essays for your exit interview in the handout available in the Honors office.

EVERYONE: Prepare for your best year yet in Honors: learn about the variety of ways to earn Honors course credit.

Honors resources for your future includes information on everything from preparing a professional resume to gaining the experience that will make that resume meaningful.

Check out this PowerPoint presentation on New Ways to Earn Honors Credit. It's not just about Honors classes anymore.  Read all about it under  "Our Classes and other ways to earn Honors credit."

Talk to your Honors Faculty Liaison, a faculty member in your area of study who can help you tailor Honors experiences in your major. Your department's Honors Liaison can support your search for a research mentor who shares your interests, guide you in the preparation of a proposal for an Honors credit-bearing experience, and connect you with opportunities you might not know about!
