- The community of friendly, supportive, and academically driven students. I’ve met some of my best friends through the Honors Program. It truly is a great community to be a part of.
- Participating in challenging, fun Commonwealth Honors courses. They have helped me expand my thoughts and engage in topics that interest me.
- The Honors Center itself. It is a place to relax, socialize, and do work.
- Trivia Nights! They are a fun break from the stress of daily coursework. Also, they are another opportunity to get to know fellow Honors Program members.
- My Honors Program job. I get to pitch ideas and express my creativity.
- The Honors Program staff. The Honors Program staff—including coworkers, Amy Couto, and Honors Director Dr. Teresa King—offer great advice when it comes to making academic as well as work-related decisions.
- Knowing I will graduate with Honors. I feel happy knowing that I have challenged myself in the four years I attended BSU. Being a member of the Honors Program and graduating with honors is like a badge. I’m proud to wear it.
- Fun events that the Honors Program hosts. The Honors Program hosts trips to the MFA, movie nights, bi-weekly breakfasts, and more.
- Getting to pick classes early. This has helped me get into courses necessary for my major that are otherwise difficult to get into if I were to register with other upperclassmen.
- Honors Center free printing. I’m always printing something for my job in the honors center, so this is important to me. I also know that if on-campus printing or my own printer isn’t working, I can always go the Honors Program to print out papers I need.
