Honors College

The Honors College, a Community of Scholars, has been enriching the lives of thousands of students since 1933. Our mission is to recruit, challenge and support the highest ability students at Kent State. Open to all majors, we fulfill this mission through offering smaller sections of courses, individualized interaction with faculty through research and other projects, the option of living in our learning community in the Stopher-Johnson complex, community service opportunities, personal advising, and several other educational opportunities and enhancements.

Honors courses are designed to teach students to be excited by ideas, to love discovery, to become independent, creative and self-confident learners. Our goal is to help students find the opportunities that will enrich their Kent State educations, tailored individually for them.
