The honors program has definitely taken advantage of this truly unique city and has shaped the program around it, thus leading to a program that is enriched with the aspects that not only define Detroit, but that define every single person in the Honors College.

Honors has helped me diversify my interests and really pursue my goals as a Warrior. It's taught me more about the City of Detroit and motivated me to help its people through service.
