Student spotlights

Samaah Abboud Health Science major, 2016
Honors has prepared me for my accomplishments through all of its four pillars. I always valued the idea of community and service, but Honors allowed me to experience new opportunities in the Detroit area that I may not have known about.
Kavya Davuluri Psychology, 2019
Without Honors, I don't believe that I would have the determination or support that I have used to push forth with my engagements around campus and Detroit. Thanks to the aspect of community and service, I have been able to give back and have even empowered others to play a role in revitalizing our city, all while creating a community of innovators and mentors.

We will create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities.
