  • Honors Housing:  Our students have the opportunity to live with fellow academically driven Honors students on the top floor of our new Piney Woods Hall.
  • Honors Facilities: Students have access to a private computer lab and lounge located on the 1st floor of ABIV and a reserved study room in the Newton Gresham Library.
  • Early Registration: Every semester, our students are the first to register for classes, ensuring that they enroll in the classes they want.
  • Distinction: Upon graduation and successful completion of the Honors College, students receive special recognition and medallion as well as a permanent notation on their transcript.
  • And more! We also have laptops, cameras, and video cameras available for Honors student use with their class/university projects.
