Honors Program


The best part of the Honors Program so far is feeling that you're a part of something. A lot of my friends and opportunities on campus are a direct or indirect result of the program.

Alex Michels
First Year Economics Major


I joined the Honors Program because it seemed like a great way to challenge myself with interesting classes outside of my unique major. The Honors Program has allowed me to learn and bond with students that I otherwise would not have met.

Laura Page
Sophomore Media Art and Graphic Design Major


I joined the Honors Program to challenge myself and to broaden the areas that I will study. The program has allowed me to travel, which has broadened my perspectives on the world.

Tyler Heintz
Sophomore Physics Major, Math Minor


My Honors Research has allowed me to develop close relationships with faculty and constantly pushes me to learn as much as I can about my field.

Melissa Bischak
Senior Microbiology Major


I joined the Honors Program because, at the time, it was something unique to Westminster.  I wanted to go to a small school where I could play sports and focus on academics, and the program sort of rounded out the package for me.

Brenna Guard
Senior Neuroscience Major


I joined the Honors Program because I saw it as a great opportunity to push myself to work to my potential, especially since I was invited into the program after the fall of my freshman year.

Brittany Slupe
Junior Chemistry Major


From the small class sizes to the opportunities I took advantage of in Greece, to the thought-provoking class material covered in honors courses, I feel that every part of my experience in the Honors Program has pushed me both as a student and as an independent thinker.

Regino Flores
Junior Biology Major


I joined the Honors Program in order push myself to reach for a higher standard. The ability to be able to publish research because of the program is one of the most beneficial things this program has given me.

Kelly Higby
Senior Microbiology Major


I have had a fabulous time in the Honors Program and look forward to continuing that in the next few years.  I have had a lot of opportunities for leadership roles as well as travel through the program, opportunities I haven't had in any other organization.

Ashlyn Brown
Junior Neuroscience Major


I joined the Honors Program because I thought it would be challenging and a good resume-builder. So far, the Program has benefitted me primarily by connecting me to students and faculty who take education seriously.
