"The Honors Program provided me the chance to get a jump start on college. Because I had the chance to move in early, I got acquainted with Downtown Pittsburgh before many of my peers. I also had the chance to meet so many other students in the program and we became best friends. I also love that Honors Program students get to register early for classes, I can tailor my schedule to my needs and not worry about missing out on the chance to take a class."

"The Honors Program has offered me so many educational, social, travel and volunteer opportunities. I went to New York City last year to volunteer and it was a blast. I enjoy being in the program mostly because through it I've met so many great friends and built relationships that I still have today."

"Through honors, there are so many opportunities to learn about the city, get involved with the community and challenge yourself in classes. The best part about honors is that it's fun at the same time! It may seem like extra work, but it's so rewarding in the end."
