John E. Sallstrom Honors College

Designed for intellectually talented and motivated students

Named for founding director Dr. John E. Sallstrom, the John E. Sallstrom Honors College is designed for intellectually talented and motivated students.

We provide small sections of core curriculum classes, lunch and dinner seminars, book discussions, and other academic and cultural events.

The Humber-White House serves as the home of the Honors College! There we have faculty/staff offices, a student lounge, study nooks and an event space that can be used for seminars and receptions. Student accommodations, classrooms, study rooms and a common room are also in Honors housing in Bell Hall – the only residential hall on the college's historic Front Campus.

We provide and help our students seek out intellectually rigorous and transformative experiences both in the classroom and beyond: experiences which will allow them to stretch their minds, craft unique records of accomplishment and achieve their longer term academic and professional goals. Some examples of these transformative experiences—such as study abroad, undergraduate research and leadership experiences—can be found on the "Honors Student Success" page of this web site.

Prospective students will find an application on the "Application/Selection" page, and are encouraged to contact us with any questions. We also welcome visits from prospective students and family members at any time of the year. Register for a campus tour with the Office of Admissions. Let Dean Brian Newsome know you are coming and he will meet with you after your tour.
