"25 for 25" Campaign to celebrate 25 years of honors

The Honors College is excited to soon announce its 25th class this fall! We are already seeing strong applications and can't wait for the 25th class to join our current students, who are continuing the tradition of excellence within the program:

  • Chemistry major accepted to both Yale and Princeton with full-cost assistantships.
  • Computer science major received job offers from Google and Amazon; accepted with Google.
  • 14 students presented at the National College Honors Council Conference. YSU was the only institution having two students win the top award in their discipline.
  • Engineering major accepted to Yale PhD program.
  • Sociology major accepted to Penn State with a full-cost assistantship.
  • Student auditioning at Juilliard School of Music.

To celebrate our silver anniversary, we are launching a new opportunity for alums to help us in preserving our past and investing in our future with a "25 for 25" campaign. We are asking for commitments of at least $25 per year for the next four years. Any donation will make a difference in the quality of experience that we can provide our students.

Alums can donate to the campaign by clicking the button below and designating contributions toward "University Scholars and Honors College Restricted Gifts." Your donation will help to defer costs of student activities, conference travel and attendance, student research opportunities, and more. We greatly appreciate your consideration of making a gift to support student initiatives.


Honors Golf Outing May 27

All Scholars and Honors alumni are invited to our 1st Annual Honors College Golf Outing, May 27, 2017, at Riverview Golf Course. The event is being coordinated by two of our Honors student leaders for alumni and friends in Honors to come together for a fun day of golf, food, drinks and prizes.

This is a four-person scramble limited to the first paid 40 teams. The cost is $65 per person and includes 18 holes and golf cart, beverages, lunch, and dinner from Cockeye BBQ. We also have a Greenwood Chevrolet hole-in-one contest to win a two-year lease on a Chevy Cruze, hole prizes and games, basket drawings and more!
