Supporting the Gordy Honors College
As an alumni of the Gordy Honors College you can help continue to offer the great opportunities, academic support, and scholarships to current and future students. By making an annual gift to the Gordy Honors College you not only show your appreciation for what it provided you, but also help the Honors College to continue to support students.
Please note that the scholarships, research grants, study abroad support, Honors Forum Series, and other special programs for students receive no funding from the university. These opportunities and support are totally dependent on private giving. Without the support of alumni and friends of the Gordy Honors College these programs will not exist.
