Honor students enjoy the honors center shared with the Leaders Scholars Institute. Here HSP and LSI students have access to a home-like environment complete with study space, two patios with a grill, fully stocked kitchen with coffee bar, several dining areas, washer and dryer, copier/printer, and classroom. The center is open from 7am – 11 pm daily. All incoming honors students are invited to participate in an all-day peer mentor retreat scheduled each fall. At this retreat students meet their peer mentors, hear from the Honors Executive Council, and have lunch. Also during the fall, new students and mentors visit the widely acclaimed Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The Executive Board is made up of honor students nominated and elected each year from the honors student body. The student-led board provides helpful social and professional workshops and events to promote higher education and life skills. They meet every week during the school year. Food for Thought is an opportunity for honors students to enjoy lunch with a faculty member at no cost. Questions about grad school, current courses, and life skills are discussed and answered by faculty members.
