HONORS PROGRAM >
Because of the Honors Curriculum requirements and in order to recognize Patriot Scholars, all honors students will be given early access to registration each semester.
Honors students are given priority for residence in the Honors Dormitory, Hamilton Hall.
Honors Student Center
Patriot Scholars enjoy exclusive access to the Honors Student Center, a centrally-located space on campus for honors students to study, gather and socialize.
Several times each semester, honors students are invited to meet with faculty and graduate students on campus for the RMU Roundtables, Honors Networking Lunches and Lunch with a Prof. These gatherings provide students with the opportunity for informal, personal interaction with faculty from across the university. It is a great chance to learn about research going on around campus and to meet faculty who may serve as honors thesis advisors. Check out our calendar for upcoming events.
Opportunities for additional academic scholarships may be available for Patriot Scholars in good standing.
Honors Travel Fellowships
A limited amount of funds is set aside each year for Honors Travel Fellowships. Honors Travel Fellowships will help to partially offset the expenses associated with travel, lodging and conference fees for Patriot Scholars who attend research conferences. Attendance at these conferences will permit the students to interact with leaders in their fields and make presentations. Honors Travel Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive process taking into account participation in the Student Advisory Committee and other University Honors Programs events. Preference will be given to those students who have been invited to make presentations at the conference.
Through the Honors Networking Lunches, small class sizes and the Honors Thesis, Patriot Scholars enjoy one-on-one interaction with faculty members from across the university.
Honors students can enjoy expanding their literary horizons through book clubs offered each semester. Books clubs are both faculty and student led. For Fall 2012, there are three book clubs. "The Host," "Night Circus," and "Cloud Atlas" are all being read in faculty and student led book clubs.
