Perks of being an Honors student

Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, we have had to suspend some perks indefinitely for our students' safety. We hope to restore them before too long.  

  • Small, advanced seminars with enthusiastic, engaged students and professors
  • Extracurricular activities and group dinners with classmates
  • Fall Honors Banquet
  • Fall trip to New York City
  • Annual Honors Christmas Party
  • Spring trip
  • Spring BBQ
  • Priority housing in Thea Bowman Hall, Loyola's newest dorm, (if desired)
  • Funding for trips to conferences and archives (application required)
  • First-come, first-served tickets to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and performances at Center Stage
  • Swipe access to Loyola's Honors Lounge and the Honors Seminar Room for meetings and group and private study
  • Free printing from three computers in the Honors Lounge
  • Early move-in for first-year students and their mentors
  • Friends for life (that’s what students and alumni tell us)
