Drake Honors is an interdisciplinary and integral part of the Drake community. It’s a place for students to take their disciplines and expand into realms beyond their comfort zone. It helps students grow into rounded individuals, both in and out of the classroom.
On this blog, you can see what our students have done, are doing, and plan to do with the program. In addition, you can see our Honors professors, who work with our students on projects across the University. We feature student work in our journal, Hoot, which is updated as pieces are received. For questions about submitting a piece, please see the Hoot page.
The program is governed by the Executive Council, a panel of students elected by the honors student body. These students assist with the academic side of the program, but their main goal is to cultivate a community where students feel comfortable sharing and developing unique ideas and identities. They do this through honors centered events every month.
