Students in the Spotlight

Honors Program students are well-rounded and balanced in their academic endeavors. Many students are athletes and manage to juggle their day to day activities, classes and social life. Our students are not just outstanding in the classroom, but also on the field. These are men and women just like you, who know what it takes to be part of a team and still excel in academics.
