Southern Arkansas University
Honors students receive priority registration throughout their academic career at SAU. They may elect to live in the Honors Hall, one of the newest residence halls on campus. Juniors and seniors may choose to reside in the University Village on-campus apartments. There, honors students are housed in top floor apartments (those are quieter) near each other. The Honors College sponsors educational trips and travel to academic conferences. Honors students have traveled to international destinations including London, South Africa, New Zealand, Havana, Paris, Venice, Florence, and Rome. National sites visited include Boston, New Orleans, Washington DC, Portland, Chicago, Denver, Seattle, and Atlanta. Honors students receive a special diploma and recognition of their honors status on their transcripts. They are also recognized at the commencement ceremony. The Honors College has partnered with three nearby two-years colleges that have recently established Honors Programs. Students from those programs may transfer their honors credits to SAU upon admission to the Honors College. The Honors College has established an exchange problem with the University of Artemisa in Cuba that created complementary murals on both campuses.
