About HOCO and me:  The Honors College allows my learning experiences to be broadened. I love the smaller class sizes. The teachers make me feel like I am important. The curriculum is also more in depth, which I like. The friends that I make in these classes are irreplaceable as well. I think the Honors College will better prepare me for medical school.

I wanted to become an Ambassador because I wanted to do something to better my school and the future students. I wanted to help out wherever I could, and since being in the Honors College is such a rewarding experience, I wanted to share that with prospective students.

My favorite thing about HOCO is the professors that teach the Honors classes. They genuinely care about me and help me whenever I need it. I am not just another face in the crowd to them.

I want to attend medical school in the fall of 2013. The HOCO has helped me and will continue to help me reach this goal by helping in the application process and encouraging me to follow my dreams.

It has definitely been the most rewarding experience I have had in college. I do not know where I would be without the Honors College.
