My favorite teacher is a person who hasn’t taught me in a traditional classroom. Morgan Bagley, athletic trainer and director of athletic training education at Mount Union, is not only my advisor and athletic trainer for basketball, but also has become one of the most important people in my life. She is always there for me no matter what and I would be lost without her.
Beyond the obvious academic benefits, honors students enjoy a number of other unique incentives such as:
- Advanced registration
- Invitations to cultural and social events on and off campus
- Conference Travel
- Participation in the honors student organization
- Service opportunities
- Overload tuition waivers
- Honors housing options
In addition to the academic challenge, participation in the Honors Program offers other advantages. Employers and graduate schools often consider students who take part in an honors program to be more motivated and able to take on more responsibility, which can increase employment opportunities and enhance graduate school admission chances. Special recognition is also given at Commencement to students who graduate with honors, and official notation of honors is printed on the transcript of grades sent to potential employers and graduate schools.
