Life of an Honors Student

Jackson May ’24
Economics and History Major

Outside of working for the history department as well as the honors department, I chose to join Honors Scholars because I wanted to push myself, as well as surround myself with other students that wanted the same thing. I’ve learned to communicate with my peers much better; I’ve noticed that I have become much more social after being in the honors program. I have also become much more adaptable and can easily shift my thoughts or actions based on the problems that may arise within any part of my life.

The best part of Honors for me is the cohort of people that I get to have class with. All of them are great to talk to, both inside and outside of class, and make the learning environment better. They are all super eager to learn and talk in class.
