Life in the Honors Program


The Golden Owl Program is a new form of point system for the Jane Stephens Honors Program. You earn a Golden Owl for participating in different activities throughout the semester. Some of these activities include: attending an honors event, participating in a committee, spending an hour at the Honors House per month, and many more. We will be keeping track of the Golden Owls throughout the semester, and at the end, whoever has the most will receive a prize. We are doing this to encourage more participation from those in the program. It also provides a new incentive to be an active member.

LaFerla Honors Floor

We are excited to announce that in Fall 2017 we are moving the honors floor to LaFerla Hall. LaFerla has a bunch of cool features that would be beneficial to honors students:

  • Study rooms with white boards on each wing
  • Lounges, microwaves, and TVs
  • A large lounge of the first floor with TVs, a full kitchen, free laundry, pool tables, and a multipurpose space
  • Less than a 5 minute walk to the Recreation Center/Show Me Center
  • Close proximity to a large number of academic including Dempster, Johnson, Scully, McGill, and Polytech
