The Honors College opens not only students’ minds to new ideas but also opens doors to life-changing opportunities. As an Honors Student, you will have special access to unique study abroad programs, field study in Washington DC, paid fellowships, and the chance to present and publish your work. In addition to academic and professional benefits, you will join a close-knit social community. Honors students live together, mentor one another, and engage in numerous activities sponsored by the Student Honors Council. For many, membership in the Honors College becomes the defining part in their Ball State education.
