Thank you for your interest in the Elliott T. Bowers Honors College here at Sam Houston State University. The Honors College was established in 1987, and has grown ever larger in size and distinction. The college has doubled in numbers just over the past five years, echoing the fairly remarkable growth here at Sam.
Added numbers have not diminished the quality of the program, however. We place precisely as much emphasis on quality as we did in 1987, but the growth in quality programs at Sam (which is underscored by a strong emphasis on teaching and scholarly excellence in our faculty, as well as the growing regional and national reputation of several of our programs) has increased the numbers of top students attracted to our University. The Elliott T. Bowers Honors College is proud to be the beneficiary of this leap forward in excellence.
If you are a beginning freshman, a transfer student, or a current SHSU student who has an excellent academic record and a desire to be in a program that will both challenge you and embrace your own excellence, the Honors College is the place for you!
