Our Current Honors LLC Residents share the reasons why they chose the Honors Program LLC!
“Living in the Honors Living Learning Community, was one of the best decisions I could have made my first year. I was constantly surrounded by people who had similar outlooks on life and on their academics. This allowed me to find a great group of friends and made my transition from high school to college extremely smooth.”
