Residence Life : Honors House

Living learning experience
If you are an Honors Program student, and you are looking for a place where:

  • You can develop a unique perspective through critical independent thinking,
  • The exchange of ideas and intellectual insights extend beyond the classroom,
  • Fantastically individual, quirky, fun and eclectic personalities can meet, discuss, and learn,
  • Ideas and imagination are taken seriously,

then the Honors House may be the place for you!

The Honors House, located at 8 Park Street, is nestled on the south end of campus, across from the Saxon Inn. The infamous seal of the Honors Program (a walrus) hangs next to the front entrance making this house easy to identify. Kanakadea Creek runs swiftly behind the house. The Honors House is labeled 45 on the campus map.
