The transition from high school to college can be very difficult. There are many aspects that can affect a studentís success and happiness throughout this transition. Being a part of the Honors Program has affected this experience in a positive manner. Being a part of the program, students were offered advantages both academically and socially. Academically, students were forced to be challenged in different honors courses and with others in the program. Honors students are also offered early registration to be able to select courses that may not have remained available to them otherwise. This year, freshmen honors students were grouped into the Honors Living Learning Community. This enabled students to make friends with whom they had classes with, as well as live with students that share similar academic interests. When making this transition, students were positively affected by the benefits offered by the Honors Program.
