Spartan Honors Community, located in Royce Hall on the 1st floor are students dedicated to sharing life and ideas that help students receive the most out of their college experience. Students in the Spartan Honors Community are from all over campus and represent majors in Science, Engineering, Humanities, and Social Sciences. While coming together with students from different departments, you will explore the great works of human culture, build a close knit community, share many interesting activities, and will complete many of your lower division general education requirements all at the same time! This community is open to all majors who are taking the Humanities Honors courses, but space is limited so apply early!
