Western Michigan University
We offer Study in the States, a signature summer program. Students travel and study with up to 9 peers and a faculty member for 1-2 weeks. Students pay for the cost of 3 credits of tuition and all other costs (travel, lodging, meals, etc) are covered for all students enrolled in the Study in the States courses. We have a Peer Student Success Team, comprised of upperclassman. These students serve as mentors for freshman and organize group activities (e.g bus trips to museums, volunteer days). Students may choose to live in an honors residence hall. We have an honors building with a lounge and kitchen and high tech classroom facilities. We host a weekly lecture series (Lyceum Lectures) in the honors college as well as a Thursday night series (Mix It Up) with fun events and professional development workshops.
