Honors students learn from an honors faculty who are among the top scholars and educators in their fields. They get to know you as you develop your skills inside class and out. That’s precisely why I teach the first accounting course in the program: I enjoy the personal environment it creates and the learning opportunities I receive from interacting with a wonderful group of students.
