Commonwealth Honors Program

Through [the CHP] program, I not only gained invaluable knowledge and skills, but I also discovered a newfound sense of self-belief and resilience. The honors courses pushed me to think critically, explore my studies in-depth, and venture into new areas of knowledge. I was surrounded by a supportive network of faculty and peers who shared a common passion for learning and personal growth.
