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.

Abdul Rihan

"As a first semester freshman, my first taste of the Honors College, Honors 1000, has been a great experience thus far. I enjoy that my professor is always there when I have questions. I don't feel like I am just a part of a college, I feel like I am part of a family. All of my peers and I have learned a lot through Honors and have also learned a lot about each other. I am excited to see what the future holds as a student in the Honors College."
