What is the Southern Scholars Program?

The Southern Scholars Program is part of the National Collegiate Honors Council, which promotes each student's practice of critical and creative thinking, leadership development, and lifelong learning. The Scholars Program is an enhanced interdisciplinary educational experience for motivated and capable students that emphasizes the integration of spiritual values into the knowledge of nature and society. As a learning environment for a community of academically responsible peers, the Scholars Program offers enriched experiences both in and out of the classroom.
