Your Journey to Personal and Professional Success
Built on the theme of Vistas and Ventures, the Tower Honors Program guides students as they navigate a path to personal and professional success. With an emphasis on self-reflection, communication effectiveness, integrative thinking and applied learning, students take rigorous classes, engage with their peers in discussion and research, participate in rewarding internships, and chart their course for a fulfilling career. This journey culminates in an Honors Capstone project that reflects their interests, major, and career goals.
