“We are excited to welcome a new outstanding class of students into ODU’s Honors Program, bringing our total to nearly 100 participants!” said John Marazita, Ph.D., professor of Psychology and Honors Program director. “This year’s group includes students with a wide range of interests, including student-athletes, international students, and domestic students, and their academic interests cover nearly two dozen majors representing ODU’s five academic divisions. Despite their individual differences, our Honors students share a passion for learning and exploring, as well as a commitment to the ODU community given the many roles they play on campus. We look forward to an engaging and productive academic year in the program!”
ODU’s Honors Program is designed to enrich the academic experience of talented and motivated students. It is a community of learners who seek to develop their love of learning, deepen their understanding of significant issues, express their creativity, and engage in independent scholarly, scientific, and artistic endeavors. Participants have access to separate living and learning spaces; opportunities for close mentorship with faculty in related academic disciplines; an invitation to participate in collaborative research with faculty; and an ability to participate in extracurricular programming.
