Welcome to the The Honors College at Oakland University! The Honors College at Oakland creates an environment for those who want to achieve. We are ambitious for The Honors College and for you. Our aim is to be a Top Ten Honors College and for our students to be Top Ten university graduates.
Speaking candidly, I have taught and researched around the world and hold doctorates from two countries, but I am thrilled to be home here in the Scholars Tower at Oakland, because of the considerable quality of Oakland University and of The Honors College.
You can always come to the HC and visit me, or talk to Dawn or Karen, who are energetic, friendly and supportive. We have fun here! Make no mistake: if someone tells you can't have fun and achieve great success in your chosen field at the same time, then they're already missing the key to success.
You'll see in our program so many opportunities. I love it that we have genuine global connections through global e-links, study abroad, our international internship program, and our regular visiting speakers. We are also members of the National Student Exchange, giving students in The Honors College access to hundreds of other choices and national exchange opportunities.
We offer a wide range of subjects, from those in the Arts and Social Sciences to those in the Natural and Physical Sciences. The topics you can study come in such a fabulous variety. For example, relating to Literature or to Medicine, to Technology, Theatre and Music, Nursing, Engineering, Business, Languages, Sports and so much more! Faculty propose new and innovative courses every year.
In The Honors College, we draw on all of the Oakland faculty team - which means that you can access the expertise of an entire comprehensive doctoral/research university. Our classes are small, and our students are leaders on campus as well as outside the university. We support personal excellence and team excellence. A Nobel Prize winner and a national Poet Laureate serve as Honorary Esteemed Fellows of the Honors College, recognizing our support of achievement. We aim to make a difference in your life, and in the lives of others. You can make a difference too.
That's the Honors College in brief. Far too brief! Come and visit us or give us a call and we can tell you a whole lot more. If you have the opportunity in front of you: "Why not Join the Top Ten!?"
Dean, The Honors College
all best wishes
