The Honors College at Oakland University aims to provide high level mentorship and mentor support in four key areas:

- College readiness and college entry for high and sustained achievement
- Undergraduate research and advanced creative activities
- Your Graduate School and career strategies
- Leadership development in research, service, and team building

As a community of high achieving students, seeking success for you, and in every discipline and in every major/minor, the Honors College, from its freshmen support to its support for your graduation and career plans, through selected courses, priority registration for   all  your university courses, honors events and activities, a dedicated and highly-experienced Advising team, and a friendly, ever-engaging atmosphere, puts mentorship for your success at the core of your college experience.

The Honors College is also the home of the Global Imaginarium, taking your learning, research and service experiences from the local and national to the international, and linking to our additional scholarship support for global Study Abroad through the wonderful Walt and Donna Young Study Abroad Scholarship, available to you as a student of the Honors College.

- Global Imaginarium - 

The human imagination is our most powerful tool. In the 21st Century world we have the ability to create a truly global “imagination powerhouse” – The Global Imaginarium

New technologies have openly linked the global power of our human imaginations. We can bring people together to investigate and resolve social and economic issues; imagine key solutions to the smallest or largest issue or need.

The Honors College Global Imaginarium creates an accessible virtual portal for the imaginative exploration of needs, ambitions, problems and, most of all, solutions. A portal, virtual creative place, multi-platform, accessible 24/7 from a variety of devices (i.e. web-based, mobile – by text, video, audio), anyone in the world can use the Imaginarium to set up and endeavor to resolve issues and needs. A creative common area for imaginative problem solving, the Global Imaginarium harnesses our creativity to provide for the future.

All are welcome in The Global Imaginarium!
