Parents and alumni are among the Honors College’s most important partners.
The Calhoun Honors College offers Clemson faculty a wealth of opportunities to work with intelligent, highly motivated and engaged students. Many academic departments regularly offer smaller, focused honors sections of required courses with smaller enrollments. Faculty may also submit proposals to create a new honors course. Even non-honors courses can be "honorized" with the CHC honors contract.
Before they officially begin their Clemson careers, many honors students participate in EUREKA!, a mentored research program in which eligible faculty are paired with incoming freshmen for the last several weeks of summer. Once on campus, honors students seek opportunities to conduct research with faculty across all disciplines, and many of them end up presenting their work at conferences or being published. Faculty across majors serve as research advisors for honors students conducting Department Honors.
As the Calhoun Honors College continues to develop new faculty- and student-driven programs, there will be even more ways to offer service to the University.
