Butler University’s Honors Program provides a unique and personalized experience for students, including access to unique Honors seminar courses, exploration of academic interests in undergraduate research through the completion of a thesis, study abroad opportunities, and much more. Meet Miranda, a current Honors Program student. 

What’s the best part about being in the Honors Program? 
The best part about being in Honors is getting to meet people in all different majors in my various classes. It’s fun to get to see and talk to people I don’t normally cross paths with. Because of Honors, I have been able to grow my friendships with people in completely different fields.

If you had to describe the Honors Program in one word, what would it be?
Inspiring. It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of school, but watching my peers in the Honors Program do cool and innovative things keeps me excited about school. 

Which Honors Program faculty member has inspired you the most? 
Dr. Carter has been an inspiration to me from my very first day on campus. She taught my First-Year Seminar, and I have taken several classes with her since. She has always pushed me to work hard to expand my ideas and take advantage of opportunities, even if they scare me. She has always seen my potential, even when I don’t see it in myself, and I am honored to know her as well as I do. 

What do you want to do after graduation? 
After graduation, I would like to get a masters in Library and Information Sciences.
