Service Learning Activities

The Honors Cohort Program provides students with the opportunity to learn through hands on experience. We work closely with leading companies, promoting team building and communication skills and encourage students to participate in service-learnng volunteer activities. We often visit companies to see business in action. These opportunities enrich the students business learning experiences.

The Honors Cohort applies academic education through service-learning volunteer activities which are integrated into the core curriculum. Students are encouraged to develop their leadership and communication skills through these unique volunteer activities.
