The University Honors Program is more than just a curriculum. The Honors Program extends far beyond the classroom, and includes a plethora of student leadership groups, events, and volunteer opportunities.


About 50% of incoming freshmen choose to live in the optional Honors housing community in West Hall on the Mount Vernon Campus. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors may choose an Honors housing community on the Foggy Bottom Campus.


From program-wide meals to carving pumpkins, exploring the city with your class to stimulating lunch lectures and faculty-led hikes, the Honors Program engages students outside of the classroom.
