NWACC Honors Program
Engage. Commit. Transform.
The NWACC Honors Program offers a curriculum of small, challenging classes led by instructors who are engaging and committed to transforming your ideas of undergraduate education. Many classes offer seminar-style discussions, learning through experience and service, and opportunities for rethinking traditional approaches to coursework.
The program strives to offer students a feeling of community as they take classes, study, and work side by side on class and service projects. Program members have access to a study lounge in Burns Hall and are eligible to apply for annual, member-only scholarships.
Honors Program students become some of the most engaged, connected, and successful students on campus; they are future nurses and history professors, scientists and English teachers, PhD's and business leaders. Contact the Honors Program at firstname.lastname@example.org.
