The State of Honors - Director Don Mykles
Our students continue to distinguish themselves. In August we welcomed another great class of 377 first-year students to the Honors Program with impressive high school records:
- Average high school GPA: 4.16
- Average ACT: 30
- Average SAT: 1289
On October 16th I attended the College of Natural Sciences Scholarship and Fellowship Luncheon. About a quarter of students in the Honors program have majors in CNS. Honors student Erin Burr was the featured speaker. Of the 177 awards recognized, 71 (40%) went to Honors students! This is all the more remarkable when one considers that Honors students are 10% of the undergraduate students in the College.
The fall semester has gone by quickly. We are looking ahead to the Honors Graduate Recognition Ceremony on December 19th - more about that later!
The goal of the Honors Program is to provide an enriched educational program of study for academically talented and motivated students at Colorado State University. Honors students benefit from small, discussion-based seminars taught by some of the University's finest faculty members, personalized academic advising, priority enrollment, opportunities for leadership, research and community service, and special scholarships. Many Honors students choose to live in one of our Residential Learning Communities.
If this sounds like the sort of college experience you are searching for, then the University Honors Program could be for you!
The Honors program is open to students in all majors and offers a flexible curriculum through two curricular options.
