“For anyone interested in developing the analytical skills required to make sense of complicated ideas, I encourage you to give Regent's Honors College a look. The relationships, skills and knowledge you'll gain through the discussion-based classes, and engaging assignments will benefit you in the years to come.”

Abigail Lindner, College of Arts & Sciences, 2022

“Honors College classes are much more focused on discussion and working with others to solve a problem. My experience was different from school: Instead of reading other peoples' data and writing a report on it, you're forming your own data and then reporting that.”

Allison Hodgkins, College of Arts & Sciences, 2022
