University Honors Program

The USA Honors program is designed to help exceptionally capable and motivated students get the most out of their college experience. Through challenging coursework, meaningful research or other creative endeavors, and international experience, it gives them the tools and opportunities to excel intellectually and academically. In short, it offers an Ivy-League education at a fraction of the price, right here on the Gulf Coast.

Mission Statement

In this effort, the USA Honors Program challenges the students' scholarly and creative abilities, provides cultural enrichment, and engages them in community service.

Honors Spotlight - Seniors Edition

Campbell Walker (Anthropology) will be graduating in December, and taking some time off of school before starting Law School.

"My advice to undergraduates is to really earnestly reach out to your professors. These are some of the most passionate and intellectual people you will ever find in the world and they have spent decades of their life pursuing their passions. Not only are they knowledgeable about their own discipline, but often times their passions spill over to many other facets of life and they can not only give you guidance on how to establish yourself in your own interests, but also enrich your mind through conversation. Some of the best relationships that I have developed here at South are with the professors whose office hours I frequented. Also, go to lectures and cultural events on campus!! These events can only serve to benefit you, and who knows, you may hear something while you’re there that leads you to discover a new interest."
