Honors Program

On behalf of our students and staff, I am very pleased to welcome you to the Honors Program community.  I hope you will consider it your own--a place in which you can dream and be practical at the same time.  There are as many ways of being a successful Honors student as there are students, and it's our pleasure to work with you. 

If you are a junior or senior in high school, please make an appointment to visit us during the academic year in order to see Honors in full swing.  You'll be able to talk to students, witness (and perhaps participate in) Honors activities, visit Honors Housing in Murphy Hall, discuss your concerns with me or a member of our staff. 

Please browse our website, learn about our current students and alumni, and look through some online copies of our newsletter, Honorable Mention.  If you have some specific questions and you can't find an answer here, please e-mail one of us at the following e-mail addresses. 

Dr. Rita Barnes, Director

Mr. Michael Clark, Associate Director

Our office is open Mon-Fri 8-12 and 1-4:30 throughout the year.
