I came to UMF as transfer student my sophomore year and my experience in the honors program has been enlightening and enrichening towards my college career. Transitioning to a new school is challenging as it is easy to fall behind in required courses, but I found that the honors faculty was willing to work with me. I have been able to fulfill requirements in this and my academic program. The honors program allows me and all the students to experience new types of courses and meet others that are also excited for the challenge ahead.
