Honors Community

Icon - LLC - Honors

This LLC, located in Scholars and Wells Houses, is offered to all first-year and returning students admitted to the Honors College. 

Honors Community creates an environment that is welcoming for students with a wide range of academic interests: from the sciences, to writing, to music, to business, and more. If you choose to live in an honors community, you will be surrounded by peers who share similar ambitions to excel in the classroom, across campus, and in the community. Residents will deepen their experience in the Honors College through regular contact with faculty and staff members inside and outside the classroom and will have the opportunity to participate in unique learning programs. In our experience, honors communities are amongst the most social and fun communities on campus. Come find out what all of the excitement is about!

This LLC is offered to undergraduate students admitted to the Honors College. In addition to all rooms of Scholars House, in 2015-16 Honors was also located on floors in Hutchens and Wells Houses!
