I always enjoyed my high school classes that were accelerated, and I was excited about the prospect of classes with students that are as actively involved in their learning as I am.
Often the professors that teach honors classes are much more involved in the subject matter and their classes are much more challenging with higher reward.
Enroll, try the classes out, and if you don’t like them, then you don’t need to continue in the honors program.
Right now I am thinking I would like to follow a path that involves using my background in science to write, such as science communication.
I enjoy seeing how involved a majority of the professors are and how dedicated they are to their students’ education.
I am involved in Symphonic Band and Benedictine Friends. I am also a lector at mass, and I work in Fine Arts Programing as a house manager.
There is an elevated standard of learning and expectations of participation in Honors classes that makes them more exiting.
Through the Honors program, I have met students and professors who have challenged me to grow as a student and as a person.
I enjoyed exploring theological concepts in Kristen Colberg’s lower theology class, but I also enjoyed questioning my morals and past beliefs with Stephen Wagner in Intro to Philosophy.
