What do you like most about being an Honors student?
I love everything about being an Honors student! From the supportive staff to the diverse group of students, the Honors College truly feels like a family. The Honors College allows me the opportunity to delve deeper into my major, as well to explore topics I’d never dream of! I love that the Honors College extends beyond the classroom. From volunteer opportunities to guest speakers to Halloween parties, there are always ways to relax with some of my closest friends.
Leadership and involvement at STATE:
I love the opportunities to be involved on campus! I’m involved in the Networks Professional Development Program, a scholarship program designed to help business students grow personally and professionally. I’m also a member of the President's Scholars Association and a part of State Dance Marathon, a philanthropic organization that raises money for Riley Hospital for Children. As a freshman, I was a member of the Sycamore Leadership Coalition, a branch of student government designed for first-year students, and I volunteered through Junior Achievement and the Indiana State University Community Garden. I also work in the University Marketing office, where I get to share my love of State with prospective students!
What advice do you have for incoming Honors students?
My advice for incoming Honors students is to take advantage of every opportunity available to be involved in the Honors College. Make friends with the Honors College staff- they’re some of the coolest people you’ll ever meet! Pop in and say hello at Honors College events. Even if you don’t love social activities, you’ll find that the Honors College events are fun ways to goof off with people just like you or to relax for a bit (and sometimes find a snack)!
