The honors program is like having one big family here on campus. Everyone is supportive and looks out for one another. I have not met anyone in honors that did not encourage me to better myself and they look for opportunities to boost my confidence!

The Honors Scholar Program has been nothing short of a blessing to me throughout my time at TWU. This program not only provided me with many opportunities, but it also provided me with a college family from whom I have received tremendous support and encouragement.
