Welcome to the Honors College

The Irvin D. Reid Honors College is city-based and service-oriented; we promote excellence and challenge our students to engage the world around them as problem-solvers and leaders. Our curriculum requires that students inform themselves about what it means to be citizens, of this city, this country, the world; we give our students tools, tools to be catalysts for innovation and improvement, and the skills necessary to create powerful solutions. The women and men who are students here — with the generous support and guidance of faculty, staff, friends and alumni — are inventing our shared future.

Reba John

"Honors students aren't just an elite group of scholars like most people make them out to be. Rather, they are a group of people who just love to learn. The Honors classes are comprised of enthusiastic intellectuals who are not only brilliant in their studies but also supportive colleagues. Honors gives students more than just challenging courses, it allows them to share ideas and stimulate insightful discussions and viewpoints."
