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.

Evan Hansinger - Honors Student Ambassador

Hello my name is Evan Hansinger and I am one of the Honors student ambassadors. I am a sophomore Political Science major with a minor in Criminal Justice. I grew up In a city called Shelby Township and graduated from Eisenhower High School. Some of my interests include watching sports, watching Netflix, and learning about a wide variety of things. Since I started at Wayne I have been fairly active in the Honors College. I volunteered for Scholars Day and of course participated in the various activities that are part of the freshman honors classes. This experience I feel not only helped transition me into college life, but also gave me a greater connection to the university and the city. I found that the activities gave me not only a deeper connection but also a sense of pride. I highly recommend students to get involved.
