"The Honors Program at Fredonia has given me the opportunity to work in disciplines
other thanmy major and get much more out of my college experience. The courses are

The classes often involve a great deal of open debate that creates an interesting
and exciting atmosphere for learning. The courses also offer students an opportunity
to learn about subjects that add variety to the required curriculum of their majors.
The classes are more interesting and enjoyable than regular classes because everyone

even during the first semester, and it just gets better as you go along.
I feel fortunate that I am a part of the Honors Program at SUNY Fredonia because it
encourages us to examine ideas, question answers, look at something deeper than face
value, and hear a variety of opinions and form your own. This type of educational
experience sparks students' interests, produces a desire for exploration, and encourages
a curiosity that will lead to true learning.
