The Honors Program provides a framework that helps students develop as scholars, lifelong learners and contributing members of their communities. To support this mission we offer special Honors housing, a community for talented students who take learning seriously, respect one another and like to have fun.
The Honors Program at Elon University is a community of exceptional students from all majors. It offers all the best features of an Elon education: challenging courses with strong faculty mentors, exciting research opportunities, exposure to international perspectives through global study, and a community of faculty and student inquirers who want to be fully engaged in a rewarding academic experience.
We invite current students, prospective students and faculty to explore our Web site to learn more about our mission, curriculum, people and opportunities.
