The Frederik Meijer Honors College is an alternative general
education program for students who desire to challenge themselves
academically. Many of our classes are interdisciplinary and
team-taught while utilizing smaller class sizes to elicit greater
discussion. We understand that sometimes the moments of greatest
learning are unplanned. These smaller classes, coupled with the fact
that many professors hold office hours nearby, foster a deeper
personal connection between students and professors. Another feature
of our curriculum is an active schedule of co-curricular activities,
both on campus and off.
The Frederik Meijer Honors College also includes an integrated living
and learning environment promoting intellectual curiosity and an
enthusiasm for learning that will live on well beyond our students'
undergraduate years. The Glenn A. Niemeyer Learning and Living Center
offers students the opportunity to take classes in the same building
in which they live. The Honors Office, Honors Director, and many
professors' offices are located in the Niemeyer Learning and Living
Center, giving students quick and easy access to all resources
available. There are Honors housing options on the north side of
campus as well in the Holton-Hooker Learning & Living Center,
which offers a vibrant Honors freshman community with spacious common
areas, meeting space for staff and students, and proximity to many
campus facilities, including the Commons, the Marketplace, the
Kindschi Hall of Science, and the Fieldhouse.
The Honors College is a resource to help students identify
opportunities, make informed and reflective decisions about career
goals, and to prepare both inside and outside the classroom to be
competitive for the best jobs, graduate programs, professional
programs, and fellowships.
