The Honors College is proud to welcome Amber into one of its highest achieving freshman classes ever and continues its strong collegiate enrollment. These academically motivated freshmen have an average ACT composite score of more than 29 points and have all been awarded honors scholarships.

The Kent State University Honors College has been enriching the lives of thousands of students since 1933 and is an institutional member of the National Collegiate Honors Council and the Mid-East Honors Association. With a long tradition of providing academically talented students a unique academic experience, the Honors College offers talented and motivated undergraduate students a small liberal arts experience with the opportunities of a large public research university.

The Honors College is guided by two basic principles: the responsibility of providing academic work that both offers intellectual challenge and demands the best efforts of students and the belief that all students should be liberally educated, regardless of degree program. The mission of the Honors College is to recruit, challenge and support the highest ability students at Kent State. Open to all majors, the Honors College fulfills its mission by offering smaller sections of courses, individualized interaction with faculty through research and other projects and the option of living in an honors learning community in the Stopher-Johnson complex. Additional offerings include community service opportunities, personal advising, and several other educational enhancements across five Kent State campuses and including the international Freshmen in Florence Program.

The goal of the Honors College is to help students find the opportunities that will enrich their Kent State educations and empower them in directing their talents toward a successful future.
