All students in the SAS Honors Program are eligible to live in Honors Housing, and the Honors Program highly recommends that all first year students live in Honors Housing. Honors Residence Halls are vibrant communities where students live and learn together.

What is your advice for incoming students?
Get involved! Find any club or activity that interests you and participate. It's a great way to meet people and get the most out of your college experience.
Get to know your professors by going to office hours or talking to them before/after class. They'll be more lenient with your grades, offer valuable insights, and sometimes provide you with opportunities such as internships and research.
