Opportunity is the key word for the SMBHC. Honors students have the opportunity to receive an Honors Fellowship to support their studying abroad or participating in an unpaid internship; they have the opportunity to receive research funds to cover expenses related to their honors thesis; and they can receive conference travel funds if they are presenting a paper or a poster at a regional, national, or international conference. Honors students enjoy the opportunity to engage with dignitaries who visit campus, usually through small-group lunches or dinners. Honors students also enjoy 24-hour access to the SMBHC building, which includes a lounge and kitchen, dedicated study rooms, and a computer lab with free printing. The building is currently undergoing an expansion and renovation to provide more space for students to engage with one another and with honors faculty.
