Honors offers an intellectually challenging environment set in an intimate learning with opportunities for personal growth and one-on-one interactions with professors. Students engage in the highest level of research and creative activity. Because Honors Students enjoy an extra level of advising, mentoring, and tutoring support, Honors makes an excellent place to provide the kind of support that first generation students need to adapt and succeed in a new and unfamiliar world.

First generation Honors Students participate in extra support programs that aid their success, and they report that being in Honors helps their transition to college. However, these students also need financial support. Even with generous tuition scholarships, first generation students often need money for books, living expenses, and unexpected needs that many of us take for granted. Your donation can ensure that a student is able to fulfill their dream and become the first in their family to graduate with an Honors Diploma.
