In 1979, the Honors College at West Chester University was built upon the sure foundations of academic excellence, campus engagement, and community building. As we celebrate 40 years of Honors education, we are extremely proud of the over 1500 men and women who took the invitation to adhere to our motto: To Be Honorable is to Serve.
The pride of the Honors College is our student body. Students in Honors represent a diversity of academic backgrounds spanning 51 distinctive disciplines. Such diversity truly enlivens discussions in class when a pre-med major and a major in music education can come together to discuss strategies for economic enhancement, formation of ethical standards for genetic testing, and approaches to survey research.
Success Starts Here celebrates student success stories on our campus. This month, meet Demetrius Woodard, a WCU senior who has received valuable support from the Honors College and from role models like his mom.
