The Honors Program is dedicated to promoting scholarship, leadership, and service and building a community of scholars who challenge and support one another. To maintain good standing in the Honors Program, with all of the benefits that membership in the Honors Program entails, Honors students must satisfy the following co-curricular requirements.


Service is one of the three core components of the Honors Program's mission. The Honors Student Organization plans local, regional, and international service projects to provide students with the chance to support worthy causes. Students are required to participate in one service project each year to remain in good standing with the Honors Program.
