BU Honors students are the best of the best – dedicated to academics and community service. They bring an eclectic array of qualities to the program that strengthen it, and embrace the challenges and opportunities associated with research, international travel and other activities. Our program finds time for fun as well. I am “honored” to work with students of this caliber. - Joan Benek-Rivera, Honors Program Interim Director

The BU Honors Program is dedicated to your academic and professional success.
