A Message About Our Annual Fund Campaign - A Foundation for Excellence

We'd like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our first-ever annual fund – A Foundation for Excellence. Together we raised over $2,600.00! These funds will be used to support a wide range of special opportunities for current honors students, as well as to build the Honors College’s endowment in support of a strong future. Our annual campaign is off to a wonderful start – thanks so much for your support!
