Fond Memories of BGSU Honors: living in Darrow Hall, meeting some of my best friends (many of whom I still keep in contact with), the interesting classes, having the feeling of being "home" when I was 100 miles away, winning a Van Gogh painting at my first ever Honors Program picnic (it's still hanging in my house!)
Impact of BGSU Honors Program on your life: The Honors program helped me to grow so much intellectually. I am able to look at things that happen in my everyday life with such a unique perspective because of everyone I met.
