"Honors at UW-Eau Claire is extraordinary courses limited to 20 students, and a wonderfully diverse community of students and faculty dedicated to learning together. Honors is great advising, unconditional support, and the vigorous pursuit of opportunities for intellectual, personal, and professional growth. And Honors is great fun: meals and excursions, parties and picnics, the new Honors Commons, the Honors Living-Learning Community in Bridgman Hall, my growing lava lamp collection, and the very best sleeping couch on campus!"
-Jeff Vahlbusch, Director, University Honors Program

Immerse yourself in extraordinary courses

Your experiences in Honors will be as multi-faceted as you make them, but the heart of the program are our courses – Honors colloquia and electives – that are specifically designed for Honors and available only to Honors students. Many new Honors courses are created every semester, offering a variety that can compete with the course lists of Honors programs at much larger institutions. They're an opportunity to dive into wildly different subjects while surrounded by other Honors students from different majors who offer new perspectives.

Honors is Community

The weekly "Meals with Honors" discussion series, group dinners in the Honors Living Learning Community, multi-course meals at the director’s house, impromptu faculty-hosted home-cooked meals and course discussions...can you tell there's lots of food involved? The Honors Program offers great courses and other academic and professional opportunities, but it also strives to nurture a close community outside of the classroom.

The New Honors Commons

McIntyre Library is the center of campus intellectual life (and, yes, socializing!). Now, it's also home to the University Honors Program.
