Honors Opportunities

Honors Retreat: August 23rd and 24th 2013

Incoming freshmen are invited to attend a two-day overnight trip to Heber.  We stay at a camp and get to know each other better through fun activities.  To sign up we have an application in the honors office and the cost to attend is $35.  Pay the fee at the fiscal office and bring the receipt and application to the honors office.  We are looking forward to seeing you there, it will be a blast.

Honors Classes: Check out the list of classes provided in the menu to the right

We offer a number of classes only available to our honors students.  We recruit our best professors to teach a wide variety of courses of interest to our students.  We also off explore courses where students go on trips to areas of interest.  In the past we have gone to Chaco Canyon, San Diego, San Pedro River, and Fall 2013 we will be heading to the Grand Canyon.

Honors Explore Classes: Fall 2014 - Grand Canyon Explore class GPH 298AA class #11979

These classes provide opportunities for students to explore subjects without the stress of a 3 credit class.  We plan on offering more class offerings in the future, students really enjoy these opportunities.
