Karolina greatly enjoyed her time in the Honors program.  She liked being part of a community of critical thinkers, most of whom were outside her major.  The program provided opportunities for her to interact with diverse groups of people and enabled her to deepen her appreciation of others’ opinions and viewpoints.  The program also provided a great support group where “everyone truly wanted everyone to succeed”.
