Participating in the Honors Experience is the first step in becoming a part of the
Honors Program family. Make this first step truly matter and get the most out of
My favorite part of the Honors Experience was definitely getting the opportunity to
meet the people I would be living and spending the next four years with. It was comforting
to show up on move in day and see some familiar faces.
Though I was very hesitant to partake in it when I was a freshman, it ended up being
very fun and allowed for a smooth transition to talk to others.
As soon as I arrived to Stockton and was greeted, I knew that it would not only be
a good weekend at Stockton, but a good 4 years. The Honors Experience gave me the
opportunity to be more familiar with the campus, bond with incoming and current students,
ask questions, and give me a preview of what my future would entail. It made me very
excited for my future, and I wish I could relive it over and over again.
My absolute favorite part of the Honors Experience is the family bond the students
bring to the program. Each one of us is supportive and appreciative towards one another.
My Honors family is my home away from home.
I truly look forward to extending our Honors Family!
