"Being a part of the Honors Program is like having your own community built right into UI. It connects you to people that have similar goals, but that also have broad interests and backgrounds; it gives you a way to challenge yourself to be the best you can be; and most of all, it gives you the opportunity to create your own successful and unique experience at UI."
