Benefits of an Honors Education

A unique experience.

An Honors education is like no other. You’ll surround yourself with like-minded individuals who are focused on their future. The small class size of each Honors-specific course also fosters a close-knit community that evolves organically through rich academic and cultural experiences. New York City is very accessible—just 23 miles away—and provides a wide range of cultural and educational opportunities each year, including music, theatre and dance performances.
