Message from the Director

I am pleased to welcome you to the Honors Program community.  You are joining the growing ranks of motivated, talented students who take advantage of the many opportunities CSU affords as you complete your undergraduate education and prepare for your future career.

Our program offers a challenging and enriching program of studies, and personalized attention and support from the Honors Program staff, faculty, and peer mentors.  We call this experience a public ivy education because you receive a world class education, participate in small learning communities typically found at liberal arts colleges, and benefit from the resources and diversity of an outstanding research university.

The University Honors Program strives to develop well-rounded individuals through the optional residential learning communities in the Academic Village and Edwards Residence Hall, and by encouraging participation in areas such as leadership, service, study abroad, and University activities.  CSU offers this flexible, personalized approach to undergraduate education so you can excel beyond the classroom.

Best wishes for a successful and rewarding first year at Colorado State University.


Donald L. Mykles, Director
Professor of Biology
