Carson: The Honors Program has given me opportunities to grow as a student and as a leader. Organizing the first Honors Program Leadership Conference allowed me to develop my own leadership skills and gave me the opportunity to meet and work with other students in the Honors Program. I have also enjoyed and benefited from learning alongside other motivated students in honors classes.
