Coming from high school and trying to find a place for themselves in college can be an overwhelming transition for students, but being a part of the Cormier Honors College is a great opportunity to be are part of a community. Having honors classes with other honors scholars, many of whom I know from living in the honors dorm or being in past classes together, is a unique experience. The honors college also puts on events for the students, which is another great way to get to know classmates. The honors college is also divided into 4 houses, all of which compete with each other throughout the year to gain house points. Honors faculty are also available to students often, as their offices are located right next to the honors study rooms and lounges. Although students join the honors college because of their academic standing, the students and faculty strive to make the college an open and welcoming community.
