The Honors Program

The Honors Program at Minnesota State University, Mankato is committed to supporting motivated undergraduate students by providing them with exceptional learning opportunities, mentoring relationships, and a supportive community that fosters their personal, academic, and professional development.

I decided to join the Honors Program at MNSU as a way to foster my skills and turn me into a well-rounded professional. This program helps me with that by challenging me to engage in research, leadership, and intercultural engagement. ALl of those qualities I believe will lead me to being a better software engineer, leader, and all around a better person entering the professional industry.

Why Honors?

For my HONR-375 class, we wrote a reflection on why we are a part of the honors program. Also a part of the reflection was why are still in the program. Here was my two page reflection on the question.
