What Harrison Scholars Say

"The thing about the Honors Program isn't that it's full of smart people. It isn't even that it's prestigious. The thing about the Honors Program is that it is chock-full of the kind of people who you want to keep around for the rest of your life—people who can get things done to the highest degree, and have a good time doing it."
--Colin Hills '13Visit with Ambassador Dunford

"When I came to BSC, I wanted to be part of something that was going to allow me to expand my knowledge in ways that I never thought would be possible. The Harrison Honors Program pushed me out of my comfort zone, while molding me into a scholar and leader who intends to make the world a better place."
--Claire Burns '12

"The Harrison Honors Program at BSC is full of surprises. My Honors classes were some of my favorite classes. Only the Honors Program can combine classic literature, creative writing, journalism, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, and races with donkeys!" 
--Katie Sack '11

"Not only are Harrison Scholars offered priority in some amazing courses, but they get special opportunities like meetings with speakers and unique service projects that other student groups do not get. I love the special relationships I made with professors and fellow scholars."
--Emily Wallace '11

"Albert Einstein once claimed that 'the only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.' This is not the case in the Harrison Honors Program, because grades and busy work are not valued, but enjoyment, a true passion for learning, and development of the mind certainly are.
--Andrew Clack '13

"The Harrison Honors Program has provided me with a means to make friends with people of similar interests and values, take interesting classes which might not otherwise be available, and gave me financial aid to study abroad."
--Marian Bradshaw '11
