The Honors Experience

The Honors Curriculum
Honors students enroll in honors-only sections of St. Norbert College’s foundation courses, Theological Foundations and Philosophical Foundations in the Study of Human Nature, in the first and second semesters of their first year.

During the following semesters, honors students choose from a selection of honors-based courses, usually enrolling in one per semester. These small discussion-based classes, nearly all of which satisfy a Core Curriculum requirement, provide students with an engaging classroom environment that offers extensive interaction with the professor as well as with the other students. 

Honors Housing
First-year honors students live together in Bergstrom Hall. Located on the north side of campus overlooking the Fox River, Bergstrom is a coeducational residence that accommodates 76 students.

As a resident of Bergstrom Hall students receive:

  • A strong honors-focused community and sense of tradition
  • Access to activities and programs designed specifically for students that assist in supporting overall student success
  • A built-in network of honors peers working to balance academic, athletic, co-curricular, and social activities
  • Collaborative support from honors and residence hall staff members, who meet regularly and frequently participate in residence hall programs and programming
  • Oopportunities for involvement in residence hall councils and Honors Student Advisory Board (HSAB) participation, and Honors-sponsored activities

With the Bergstrom Hall community as a launch pad, students begin building their SNC network from day one.
