“Small classes allowed for more individual attention from professors and, even more importantly, more open discussion amongst the class. We all felt comfortable voicing our thoughts and ideas and testing out theories. Also, the added rigor in honors courses allows participants to delve deeper into the given area of study than in traditional courses.”
—Lauren Tyrrell, English
