What do you like most about being an Honors student?

My favorite part of being an Honors student is the classes that are available to me as a part of the Honors College.  From GH 101 to 301 courses, I have been able to take some amazing classes that have opened up my mind to different topics and areas that would not have been available to me otherwise.

Leadership and involvement at STATE:

- State Dance Marathon: Vice President of Internal Affairs

What advice do you have for incoming Honors students?

Get involved once you join, whether it is through major-related organizations, Greek life, or the Honors College.  Also, trying organizations that are outside of your comfort zone can help you develop into a better leader and a stronger communicator to those within it.  It may also open up your scope of view, and allow you to meet people you wouldn’t have otherwise.  Getting involved is the best way to meet people and form new relationships, become a stronger leader, and make the most of your collegiate experience.
