What's the value of a College Education?

Is it measured simply by a graduate's increased earnings? What about a graduate's impact on his or her family and community? Perhaps, because it is positive in so many ways, both tangible and intangible, that the value of an education is so great that it cannot be calculated.

However, this much is certain: to realize this value, college students need financial resources.

Honors classes are generally smaller, allowing students to engage in thoughtful discussion with their professors and with each other. Honors education encourages independent learning, often involving undergraduate research or creative projects. It is the perfect place for the student hungry for information. An honors class is comprised of enthusiastic intellectuals who are not only smart but also supportive of each other.

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.
