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.

Michael Chrusciel

"Honors provides rare opportunities for personal growth and responsibility that you can't get elsewhere, including opportunities to speak publicly, network with other goal-oriented students and active WSU faculty members, and assist in preparing major university events, as well organize and manage several of your own. I am grateful to the Honors College for the leadership and networking opportunities, and teachable moments it has provided me."
