Why Join Honors?


The Honors Program provides a home for students who want to get the most out of their SU education; who want to challenge themselves; who have diverse interests and wide-ranging curiosity; and who are willing to work hard because they enjoy seeing the benefits of that work – to themselves and their communities.

CLASSES: Honors classes are taught as small seminars, designed by the Honors instructors to engage your interests, all based on current research and practice in the field.


ADVISING: Honors advisors are familiar with the challenges and opportunities that excellent students face, and provide superb support through advising and personal attention.  This includes advising on career interests, and on graduate and professional schools, and preparation for prestigious graduate fellowships and scholarships.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: A hallmark of the Honors Program is the completion of a Capstone Project in your senior year.  This project is the culmination of your academic or creative interests, and often lays the groundwork for your professional or educational path after SU.

THE HONORS SUITE: The Honors Suite is home to our two “smart” seminar classrooms, our advising staff, as well as our student lounge and dedicated computer lab – the lounge and lab are available to Honors students 24 hours a day.
