An Extraordinary Experience

At the heart of UNLV's sprawling campus, we've created a very special place - a small, selective college delivering an academic experience that rivals the most esteemed undergraduate programs around the country. This is our Honors College.

Congratulations, Graduating Class of 2020!

We are immensely proud of the hard work and dedication of our graduates, and we eagerly await the time when circumstances allow us to celebrate their accomplishments in-person at our Medallion Ceremony.

In the meantime, Dean Hanson wanted to offer this brief video message to the Class of 2020 followed by a listing of graduate names. You can find individual graduate profiles and a special message from Honors College Faculty & Staff on our Facebook and Instagram.

 

Small classes. Big ideas.

Honors College was built for students who simply want more — more depth, more challenges, more opportunities. When you choose Honors, you'll be joining a community of passionate students who, despite their various areas of study, share a drive to build fulfilling lives that will impact the world. Are you in?
