Welcome to Honors

The Renée Crown University Honors Program students begin with the First Year Experience, where they are paired with peers and a student mentor, engage in a semester of shared activities, and gain awareness of campus life. Honors students excel in attaining scholarships, awards, fellowships, recognition at professional conferences, publication, internships, and entrance to graduate school and service organizations.

At graduation, Honors students have completed a rigorous curriculum that represents breadth, collaborative capacity, global awareness, command of language, and depth. Each student completes a three-semester, independent thesis, and has contributed to community and campus civic engagement.
