Orientation, The Class of 2022

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 the past twelve years of the Emory & Henry College Honors Program, we have grown to include around 75 current Honors Program Scholars and over 150 Honors Program Alumni who have gone on to graduate schools or careers all over the country (See a list of graduate schools on our “Alumni” page of Stories). 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
