Understanding Cost and Financial Aid
The Honors Program is designed to enhance the undergraduate experience of high-achieving students by offering Honors courses in the General Education Program and interdisciplinary team-taught seminars that integrate learning across the College of Arts and Sciences, the Haub School of Business and the School of Health Studies and Education. Students are encouraged to pursue opportunities for directed and independent research in their major(s) or minor(s) programs that will inform their culminating capstone or Honors thesis project.
All admitted students are reviewed for the Honors Program at the time of admission. If you wish to be reconsidered, please submit the appeal form which includes a short essay.
Orientation is where your new classmates become your new best friends.
Trips to the city include Philly favorites like Reading Terminal Market, the Philadelphia Art Museum and more. Orientation leaders guide you through using local public transportation.
As part of Orientation in 2019, students played FACTUALITY, a board game and facilitated simulation of real-life experiences in America that examines the advantages and limitations that stem from each character’s intersection of race, economic background, gender, sexual orientation and religious affiliation.
Yes, we'll give you a tour, answer questions, help you get settled. But we'll also invite you to have some fun with team building, games and ice breakers to help you start to feel like part of the Hawk community.
