Happiness through Knowledge

The University Honors Program offers undergraduate students a series of opportunities for excellence and creativity in the form of exceptional courses, independent study, colloquia, research, and internships. Our students find their place among a large but intimate community of scholars in every discipline.

We support intellectual freedom, celebrate individuality, and hope each graduate will become a life-long learner. Our motto is “per sapientiam felicitas” which means “through knowledge, happiness.”


UL Lafayette Honors Program 3rd Floor Fundraiser


Go Here to See Pictures from the 2016 Honors Soiree d'Excellence

In 2014 the Honors Program presented a night of enchantment and pride, the Honors Soiree' d'Excellence. The Honors Program was able to raise nearly $5,000 with the help and proceeds of many students, professors, and community leaders for the expansion of the 3rd Floor of Judice-Rickels Hall. In 2016, the Honors Program supplied another opportunity for individuals, family members, alumni, and friends of the program to gather and dine in honor of the program and in order to raise funds for the 3rd floor expansion. Provided is a brief video created by Honors Students explaining our continued need.

If you would like to help us continue to increase the expansion of our 3rd floor, please do not hesitate to donate.
