to the campus for freshmen. The Mentor Program is unique on campus, so freshmen are
able to learn more about the Honors College and University to have a more successful
transition from high school to college.

offers a few trips of its own. If you're a student in good standing in the program,
you may participate in a group trip every semester, a fall day trip and a spring weekend
trip. Previous day trips have included Niagara Falls and the Rock and Roll Hall of
Fame in Cleveland. Recent spring trips have included a trip to Washington, D.C., where
students visited the Newseum, Capitol Building, and Holocaust Museum; and New York
City, where students visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Bridge,
the 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial, and other sites of cultural significance.
