Learn, Lead, Live with Fellow Honors Students

Location: Hume Hall

The Honors Residential College at Hume Hall is a living learning community built on the former site of the original Hume Hall, which opened in 1958 and was razed in the fall of 2000. Designed as a residentially-based academic community, the new Hume Hall opened in 2002 and integrates the housing needs of Honors residents with facilities, staff, and programs in support of the Honors Program.

The Honors Program offers opportunities to students to enroll in small, challenging classes with the best faculty at the university. They sponsor study abroad programs designed to enhance student understanding of different cultures. Honors students also benefit from undergraduate research opportunities and unique internship programs.

The honors residential college assists honors students in their college transition by promoting involvement with the campus community through residence hall activities, student organizations, and interaction with faculty, staff, and other students. It also aims to provide opportunities to participate in activities that enhance the undergraduate experience, including involvement in community service, study abroad, conducting research, and completing an internship.
