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.

"The Honors experience has not only given me the opportunity to go to school debt-free, but has also allowed me to experience the urban city through trips to the Eastern Market and the Heidelberg Project. I have gained more insight about the city that I live in and have been able to delve further into subjects I have particular interest in while gaining my Honors co-major. It has truly been an eye-opening experience so far!"
