Students standing in shallow water

There’s more to your degree than your major. You go to college for a program of study. But beyond the classes you take to earn your degree at Colorado State, you’ll find lots of opportunities that will support and elevate your academic journey.

University Honors Program

Challenge yourself to take your education to the next level. The University Honors Program is a community of academically motivated students who learn – and sometimes live – together. Honors students have access to small seminar-style classes, opportunities for leadership, priority registration, and more.
