Student Testimonials

Here’s what some of our students have said about their honors program experience (and we didn't pay them anything to say these things!):

Gisette Paez

  • Hometown: Manhattan, NY
  • Sophomore
  • Criminal justice major

“I like the diverse courses and the small class size the honors program offers. I love the Honors Center lounge. I come here all the time to study.”


Nicholas Schumacher

  • Hometown: Macedon, NY
  • Junior
  • Dual major in entrepreneurship & business administration

“The Honors Seminars allow me to study and learn in an environment where conversation and variety are encouraged  for understanding different points of view.”


Adam Saccardi

  • Hometown:  East Setauket, NY
  • Class of 2016
  • Triple majors: history, political science and economics

“The honors program has offered me opportunities I couldn’t have found anywhere else on campus.  The classes allowed for engaging discussion on a variety of topics that we as students directed. The small classes were also a unique opportunity to get to know your professors really well, and I know I've become good friends with all of my seminar professors.”
