Honors College Involvement: University Honors Program
As a freshman in the honors college, I made sure that the Honors College was a big part of my life at UA. I attend University Honors activities such as the Honors Convocation and a few other Honors activities in the Honors Hall. More importantly, I am learning how to become a true scholar through my UH 100 class. I am actively learning how to be a critical and creative thinker as well as be a good citizen. By being a good citizen and making critical decisions, we gain social capital. I have learned that by networking, taking the first step and taking initiative are great ways to increase your overall social capital. I want to be one who belongs to a group at UA rather than just fit in, as we are learning in our UH class. Students who believe they fit in well do well in school. I am in love with UH 100 because we talk about these real these real world skills that will overall make us a better person and help us to succeed in life, which is a goal of the Honors college.
University and Community Involvement:
Why not Honors? It would be foolish not to do Honors in my opinion. Honors has provided me with so many different resources and help that I will take advantage of in order to succeed. Most of us have the desire to succeed, and more importantly, to find their role in life. Whether I become an actuary with my actuarial science minor, or a financial advisor, I know that I can always go to the Honors College to help. They value their students and make sure they are accessible. With the Honors College building being open 24/7, I always have a place to quietly study at. Being in the Honors College, I am with like-minded people who want to make the world a better place. By being in the Honors College, that shows you are determined and are a scholar. Those are the people who I want to be around to shape me. It is a group that I can relate to and fall back on. The Honors College also loves their students for who they are as a person. Whether it is by encouraging group hangouts in my UH class or offering block seating at the football game, the Honors College is genuinely concerned with my well-being.
