HLC Visits IU

joined hands

This past Friday, our Honors Leadership Council (HLC) ventured down to Bloomington to visit Indiana University’s Hutton Honors College. This trip occurred entirely due to the inspiration and efforts of the members of the HLC themselves. Their adviser and attending staff member, Sashaun Wood, credits the entire experience to the students.


Community in the Honors College

joined hands

Community is important to us here in the Honors College. Students are able to connect across disciplines with other students and faculty, making the Honors College a unique and well-rounded community. As we welcome students back to the community at the start of spring semester, we asked some of them, "What does community mean to you?"


Study Abroad

Count Dracula's castle

There are many opportunities to study abroad at Purdue, and what many may be unaware of is that the Honors College itself offers several study abroad programs for its students. These programs include everything from spring break to maymester to semester-long experiences, and they offer students a more interdisciplinary experience than opportunities offered through specific majors.

One important and beneficial aspect of the Honors College is the offering of interdisciplinary projects and opportunities. Although many interdisciplinary, thought-provoking HONR classes are offered each semester, the Honors College also provides smaller, less time-consuming opportunities for its students to experience teamwork and innovation outside the classroom.
