The Honors program at the University of Connecticut has been educating students since its inception in 1964. The highly selective program is designed to provide the richest possible collegiate experience for intellectually-gifted and highly motivated undergraduate students. The honors program provides challenging academics, a personalized collegiate environment, a community designed for individual, social, and cultural development, and engagement and leadership beyond the classroom for the ten percent of undergraduate students who are enrolled as honors students. The program is made up of between 400 and 500 incoming students each year, and graduates approximately 300 students each year. As a part of the program students conduct undergraduate research projects in their area of study, producing an honors thesis during their senior year which the university saves in its archives. Graduates of the honors program have gone on to work for some of Connecticut's top companies, attend graduate programs at the nation's top universities, and been the recipients of the nation's most prestigious scholarships.
