The Honors Program values its members’ unique histories and recognizes each individual in the quest to interpret his or her place in this world.
The program intends to provide customized learning environments to meet the needs and interests of academically aggressive college students by offering honors courses designed to engage students in a dynamic liberal arts education, extracurricular opportunities to develop academically, socially, and spiritually, and standards advantageous for graduate school admission. Students are recognized as “Schreiner Honors Scholars.” Students are required to develop a leadership position on campus before they graduate, and are encouraged to attend the Italy study abroad trip their senior year. They are also encouraged to apply for the Hatton Sumners Scholarship during the spring of their sophomore year with Professor McCormack.
Cross-honors class social activities and annual honors-only courses facilitates relationships with upper class honors students to help new students navigate college life and reach their academic goals with peer collaboration.
Students receive focused mentorship by Dr. Elliston and Professor McCormack, and will have the opportunity to actually engage in high-level discussion about wide-ranging topics through the IDSTs and the Honors colloquium. Upon graduation, students receive recognition as Schreiner Honors Scholars and receive Honors designation on their diplomas as well as an honors ring.
