For Prospective Students
Welcome to the Honors at Tennessee Tech!
In a nutshell, Honors provides smaller, in-depth classes and co-curricular activities in leadership, service, personal growth, team-building, and greater cultural understanding. Most of all, Honors is about being more: a scholar who is openminded, a citizen of the world, a creative problem solver.
Tech Honors is for students who have the initiative, intellectual drive, and creative thinking skills to explore and inquire.
It's not just about what looks good on a resume:
Honors means serving the world more deeply through a commitment to integrating critical thinking, servant leadership, and continued growth.
Learning how to ask more penetrating questions in all aspects of life--and doing so with a supportive community of thinkers--is at the heart of the Honors experience.
