What is your favorite aspect of the Honors community?

The ability to meet those of different majors in an Honors class. In my non- Honors classes, I tend to meet those who are in the same major as me which is great but the conversations are not as interesting when compared to my Honors classes. In my Honors College classes, I meet individuals from the College of Education, College of Fine Arts and Communication, etc. Since these classes have students from different Colleges and majors, the conversations can be very interesting when we can talk about different topics but can still have a good time.

What advice would you give a prospective Honors student?

There are many Honors classes/ topics to pick from so never settle for a class you are not even interested in. Picking classes you are interested will make you excited to come to class everyday. Try to have fun by joining clubs and organizations or attending events. This made my freshman year amazing. I was always looking forward to an event or club meeting and this is great for more difficult times like midterms or finals.

What is an academic experience - like a book, project, or research paper - that has had an impact on your life?

In my freshman year, I wrote about water births in my Towson Seminar class. I was able to present my research at the Maryland Collegiate Honors Council annual conference with the help of the Undergraduate Research Club. I loved this experience to get to see what other colleges were researching in. Before this class, I knew I would like research but was unsure about how to start and this class/ research paper gave me that opportunity.

Why did you choose the Honors College?

I choose the Honors College because I was looking forward to smaller class sizes and having more opportunities to excel during and after college.
