University Honors

Our Mission

University Honors challenges motivated students to create their own world-class education. The program supports students' efforts to take advantage of all that a major research university offers in the intimate setting of a smaller academic community. Integral to undergraduate education at Virginia Tech, University Honors provides leadership in innovative and extraordinary learning opportunities.
