The Honors project is potentially the most valuable component of an Honors education. Typically Honors students choose to do their projects in their area of study, but some will pick a topic of interest unrelated to their major.
The Honors Program requires that the project be presented at a poster presentation event. Poster presentations are held each semester. Most students present during their senior year, but may do so earlier if their honors project has been completed.
This site presents project descriptions and selected posters for Honors projects completed since the Fall 2015 semester.
Starting in April of 2015, I met with my advisor and we started planning my book. I went through an adapted version of 21 days to a novel where I planned the main plot and created my characters. I decided to write in the young adult super hero genre. I finished that in August of 2015 and started writing my first draft during the Fall semester. I finished in December with about 75,000 words of a first draft. I have edited my first draft and corrected major problems. Then I sent it to two of my friends so they could read it and give me feedback. Once they finish, I will edit my book with their comments in mind. The final product will be presented at the honors project presentations.
