Northern Kentucky University
The Honors Program is located in a cozy house on campus. Honors classes, advising, and social events such as the Honors Picnic, coffee houses, and the annual Halloween party occur in the Honors House and surrounding green space. The Honors Program offers a service-oriented internship to students called Honors Peer Mentors, guiding first year Honors 101 students through their first semester of college. The mentors receive three credit hours for their service to the program. The Honors Program also sponsors the Honors Herald, a student written and edited semi-annual magazine comprised of a variety of articles about academic experiences, study abroad, civic engagement and leadership. The Honors Student Council is a group of students who represent the students of the Honors Program. Students have the opportunity to attend various academic conferences like the National Collegiate Honors Council, Southern Regional Honors Council, Kentucky Honors Roundtable and the semi-annual Conference of Honors. Callahan Hall houses the optional Honors Living Community and serves as a space for honors students to reside around like-minded, academically focused peers enrolled in the Honors Program. The living community also sponsors various programs for the residents to ensure an active and enriching environment.
