RSU Honors Program
The Honors Program at Rogers State University provides an atmosphere where our best and brightest scholars can challenge themselves academically to maximize their college experience.
Honors courses at RSU are specifically designed to challenge students, as well as provide a supportive learning environment for this community of scholars. The honors courses are designed to integrate curriculum, develop and integrate learning communities, and assist in the integration and oversight of service-learning opportunities.
The Honors Program requires that students engage in at least 25 hours of service per semester with government agencies, social service agencies, or non-commercial entities. Service learning projects will be “real world” experience directly relating to the student’s area of academic or professional interests. All projects are approved in advance by the faculty advisor and director of the Honors Program.
Because of the program’s focus on service learning, the Honors Program has partnered with Claremont Elementary to provide tutoring assistance in several different academic areas. This allows them to use their skills they have developed and more importantly impact the life of a child in a positive way.
