The Honors College - A Community of Scholars
EXCELLENCE in Action: Explore, Discover, Engage
Welcome from the Dean
Welcome to the Honors College at Kent State University! Our Honors program 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. Our goal is to help students find the opportunities that will enrich their Kent State educations, tailored individually for them.
I encourage you to browse through the pages of our website to learn more about Honors at Kent State, and also to contact our staff for assistance with questions you might have.
