Your Experience, Your Programs

The Purdue Honors College is dedicated to providing meaningful opportunities to enhance the honors student experience. We are building an interdisciplinary community of scholars by adding value through specialized programming and events that are connected to our pillars. The Honors College strives to create an environment in which every student can feel connected, learn, and grow as they each pursue greatness. To reach your full potential in the Honors College, students should attend at least three honors programs per semester outside of the regular curriculum requirements. We invite you to be a part of one of our many upcoming events as we ignite the imagination of our community and forge the future of our college.

We’ll also explore the works of contemporary sound artists, musicians, and composers using similar strategies.
