Kent State University
The Stopher-Johnson Complex, which opened in fall 2006, houses the administrative offices of the college, as well as accommodations for 440 freshmen and returning honors students. Additionally, the complex houses a library with computer stations, classrooms and meeting rooms. The complex houses a community of honors staff, faculty and students in an environment that encourages learning and provides opportunities for cultural and social activities. Students may assume an active role in the Honors College by serving on the Honors College Policy Council, by participating in regional and national professional conferences and by serving as Resident Assistants in the honors residence halls. Recognizing the value of education abroad, the Honors College sponsors programs at three sites: Leicester University in England, the University of Ulster in Northern Ireland and Kent State University in Florence, Italy. These programs combine academic study with enriching cultural and social experiences. In addition to these programs, honors students participate in many education abroad and study-away opportunities offered by the university.
