Honors College

Honors Activities

Honors College students are part of a community of scholars that share experiences in and outside of the classroom. Honors activities provide opportunities for students to learn from faculty, alumni, guest speakers and their peers. Students participate in activities that foster mentorship, leadership, civic engagement and a global mindset.

Shared Honors Experiences

Co-Curricular Activities

Faculty can assign co-curricular activities in their Honors courses and sections that count toward Honors College requirements.

Lunch and Learn with Florida Tech Alumni
