The Honors College is a challenging and supportive environment where you can discover the best in yourself. Our small class sizes invite thoughtful, spirited interaction among students who draw strength, focus and inspiration from each other. Professors see the best in you, and expect the best from you. Individualized advising and programming helps you to find a community on campus. The Honors College intentionally focuses on building a community where everyone can belong. So, join us on this journey of intellectual discovery.

Stand Out.

Many of our students reflect how the Honors College gives them the confidence to go across campus and make a difference throughout their collegiate career at BGSU and beyond.  Honors students participate in ground breaking research, write music, enrich the university by serving in key leadership roles, and travel abroad to deepen their understanding of the world around them. “The Honors College is a place for BGSU’s brightest and best students to thrive. We strive to create a supportive environment for academic and personal growth, and to prepare students for graduation and for lifelong learning and success.” Simon Morgan-Russell, Ph.D., Dean
