The Honors Program provides a special, congenial setting for your intellectual growth, both during classes and extracurricular events. Activities include:
During previous semesters, Honors students discussed current science issues over dinner with Bill Nye (The Science Guy), astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson (right) and Joanne Rogers (widow of the late Fred Rogers), and participated in poetry readings and discussions with faculty. Students of the Honors Program have also traveled to New York City and driven to Washington, D.C., for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Supreme Court.Honors students in majors with a senior research or capstone project will be strongly encouraged to present their work – both in a special colloquium at Saint Vincent College and at professional meetings in their research areas.
