About Honors



Priority Registration

Because of the requirements specific to the Honors curriculum and in order to recognize the achievements of Patriot Scholars, all Honors students will be given early access to registration each semester.

Priority Housing

Honors students are given priority for residence in the Honors Dormitory, Hamilton Hall.

An Intellectual Community

Through the Honors Networking Lunches, small class sizes, and the Honors Thesis, Patriot Scholars enjoy one-on-one interaction with faculty members throughout the university.

Honors Student Center

Patriot Scholars enjoy exclusive access to the Honors Student Center, a centrally-located space on campus for Honors students to study, gather for meetings, and socialize.

Honors Programming

There are many honors events each semester, including the RMU Roundtable Series, Honors Networking Lunches, and "Lunches with a Professor". These gatherings provide students with the opportunity for informal, personal interaction with faculty from all educationals sects at RMU. It is a great chance to learn about research going on around campus, as well as to meet faculty who may serve as Honors thesis advisors in the near future. Check out our calendar for upcoming events.

Patriot Scholarship

Opportunities for additional academic scholarships may be available for Patriot Scholars in good standing.

Book Clubs

All Honors students have the opportunity to join a student or faculty-led Honors book discussion. In the Spring 2017 semester, five books, "Frankenstein," "You Are What You Love," "The Lexus and the Olive Tree," "Angels and Demons," and "Eileen: A Novel" were read.

Honors Travel Fellowships

A limited amount of funds is set aside each year for Honors Travel Fellowships. These fellowships will help to partially offset the expenses associated with travel, lodging, and conference fees for Patriot Scholars who attend research conferences. Attendance at these conferences will permit the students to interact with leaders in their fields and create presentations. Honors Travel Fellowships will be awarded through a competitive process, taking into account participation and contribution in the Student Advisory Committee and other University Honors Programs events. Priority selection will be granted to those students who have been invited to make presentations at the conference.
