"The Honors program has been an important part of my college experience, and has helped me to grow as a leader, and expand my horizons, literally. I was chosen to participate in the summer Honors program of 2010, where I left the United States for the first time, and explored the country of Egypt with 27 other Honors students from across Pennsylvania. This opportunity stands out as one of my most exciting and rewarding collegiate experiences, and has piqued my interest in future world travel." -Dave Moyer
The students are enthusiastic and energetic, committed to academics, service, and community. There are many challenging and unique opportunities for Honors students, including independent research, international travel, and on-campus activities. I enjoy working with this diverse group in which everyone strives for excellence. - Stephen Kokoska, Honors Program Director
