The East Central University Honors Program is designed to offer an enhanced e ducational experience to academically talented and highly-motivated students. Honors students join a community where they meet some of the brightest and intensely-motivated students at the university. Benefits include one-on-one work with professors on their subject of choice, or completing an upper-division research project or thesis. Hon ors students enroll before other students in order to get the desired -- and needed -- courses in a timely manner. These ambitious students have been accepted into graduate and medical school programs at Stanford, Dartmouth, and Johns Hopkins, in addition to medical, graduate and professional programs in Oklahoma and neighboring states. Honors students have also seized the opportunity to travel and see parts of the world in which they’ve never seen before.
