I'm a non-traditional student who is returning to school ... will I feel out of place in Honors?
Not at all. Some of our most successful Honors students have balanced family and work lives when starting their career at Stout later than other students who come straight from high school. These students have often found that Honors courses are exactly what they're looking for, with a chance to get into more depth and discussion, share their experiences, and have more self-direction in their coursework. Rather than busy work and memorization of the textbook, your Honors courses involve deeper learning and application, which might be just right for you!
Honors can also provide a social group that is easy to integrate into with lots of events to attend, which can be a big help to students who commute and don't live in the dorms. Our office is also a space to study between classes which can be a big help if you're an off-campus student - you can plop down on our couches and pour yourself a coffee while you work.
We also have a dedicated position for non-traditional student representatives on our Advisory Board to make sure your needs and voice are heard in the program.
