What is the Honors Program?
The mission of the St. Norbert College Honors Program is to provide students of outstanding intellectual ability, high motivation, and broad interests with a learning environment which empowers them to achieve their maximum potential as shaped by the Norbertine traditions which call us to pursue truth, collaborate with others in order to share knowledge and solve problems, and strive to respond to the needs of our local community.
Most first-year honors students live together in Bergstrom Hall, where they actively engage in building a community of student-scholars (and have a good time doing so!). All honors students take one course a semester that is honors-only, with an even smaller enrollment than traditional classes. These discussion-based classes provide students with a challenging classroom environment and lots of interaction with the professor, as well as with other talented and dedicated students.
The St. Norbert College Honors Program will promote and support life-long learning, creative problem solving, critical thinking skills, original research, and ethical leadership.
Completed applications are ensured of receiving full consideration for entry into the program in Fall 2014.

The Honors Center
The Honors Center, located in Todd Wehr Hall 227, is a centralized location for honors students to exchange information about honors classes, scholarships, programming and upcoming events. The center also serves as the liaison for opportunities offered by the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC). At the center you can find such resources as texts, journals and other media for honors students and for faculty teaching honors courses. The center is open Monday through Friday from 7:30-4:00 p.m. The center is staffed by Stacey Wanta, Office Coordinator of the Honors Program.
