John F. Reed Honors Program

We strive to become the most caring, rigorous honors program for high-ability, high-achieving students at a public liberal arts college in the western United States . . .

Welcome to the John F. Reed Honors Program

Would you like to join a transformative community of curious-minded seekers, persons looking for answers to our planet's most pressing problems—and have fun along the way?

Honors Scholar do not merely accrue additional credits, jump through awkward hoops, and write longer and longer—and more and more—essays on topics about which they care little.

Honors Scholars are not parrots-in-training. Rather, Honors Scholars dream, think, talk, listen, collaborate, and play their way into a new way of doing college, a new way of being human.

Small seminars, independent studies, mentoring, off-campus activities, special events, and an on-campus lounge reserved exclusively for Honors Scholars—these are just a few of the benefits for those who join.

To schedule an application interview, send a brief email to Dr. William Lee Mangrum, Temporary Coordinator of the John F. Reed Honors Program. Better yet . . . apply here!
