So far, my experience with the honors program has been somewhat surprising. I think it’s fair to say that I wasn’t the only one to think the same thing. Not knowing if I was left out of the loop on summer reading assignments prior to our first seminar, I was greatly relieved when I found out that wasn’t the case. Overall, my first impression of the class is on the positive side and looking up. To any new student entering the honors program, I recommend going to the honors luau because it’s a great opportunity to get acquainted with most of the honors students.
