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.
