What do you like most about being an Honors student?
My favorite part about the Honors College is that you can replace your foundational studies with Honors classes that are very engaging. The Honors College does a great job at offering classes that are interesting and stimulating for students. Also, being able to have priority registration makes it guaranteed that you would get in the classes you want.
Leadership and involvement at STATE:
I love staying heavily involved in many different organizations. I am in the Networks Professional Development Program in the Scott College of Business and involved in State Dance Marathon, an organization that raises money for Riley Children’s Hospital. I am also involved in Gamma Iota Sigma, which is an Insurance fraternity on campus. With being involved in organizations, I also am a Junior Achievement volunteer, which allows me to teach students (K-12) work-readiness and financial literacy skills. On top of this, I work for Student Support Services here on campus.
What advice do you have for incoming Honors students?
Get involved. You will miss home, and that is okay! College is what you make it. There are so many great organizations that you can get involved with and meet so many different people. It is so much easier to get the college experience if you are going to events and joining organizations instead of thinking about missing home!
