"If happiness is activity in accordance with excellence, it is reasonable that it should be in accordance with the highest excellence."
~ Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics (1177a11-12)
The Honors Program at Penn State Beaver enhances the academic experience for those students with the ability and desire to excel intellectually and personally by cultivating the habit of excellence.
The Honors Program provides students with an opportunity to work closely with professors and pursue academic topics in greater depth than is typically available solely through traditional course work. Frequently, students are able to tailor curricular requirements to suit their educational objectives.
In addition, Honors students enjoy special academic privileges, including early registration, a more liberal library borrowing policy, and possibly, further access to research opportunities in the classroom and beyond course work. The Honors Program can also serve as a gateway to the Schreyer Honors College for those students who demonstrate exceptional academic performance.
