"Being Honors students and graduating with Honors represents a lifelong commitment to honesty, integrity, curiosity and heart. Living in the Honors community for four years has taught us how to manifest these principles both inside and outside the classroom. However, it is our ability to extend these ideas beyond the university that gives the Honors experience profound and lasting meaning." – Michael Walker and Leslie Pyo
