About Us

Explore. Experience. Engage.

The Emory & Henry Honors Program inducted its first class of 16 students in Fall 2009, and our first cohort graduated with the college’s first Honors Diplomas in May 2013. Over these first nine years of the Emory & Henry College Honors Program, we have grown to include around 100 current Honors Program Scholars and over 120 Honors Program Alumni from all over the world. Our Honors Program is intentionally open to students with a wide range of intellectual interests and boasts majors from every undergraduate department at the college.


“The Honors Program is a place to thrive. It’s a community of support, friendship, and laughter that connects each of us. Not only is it a place to freely think and learn, but also a place to socialize and connect with people you might not have necessarily gotten to connect with in other circumstances. The Honors Program allows me to be me, and that means everything.” -Kayla Claiborne ’21
