Honors Students

Prospective Students

“We all dream, when we are in high school, of coming to college and sitting down with a professor and maybe having coffee, and talking great ideas. It’s part of the mythology of what college should be. It almost never happens anywhere in the world. It happens here in the Honors College.”

Created in 1981 as the University Honors Program, Honors at UB has been providing promising young scholars with the tremendous opportunities of a large research university while providing a small college atmosphere for them to grow in. In 2016 we celebrated our 35th anniversary.

Our Honors alumni are located throughout the world. Many have continued their studies at the best graduate schools in the country, winning prestigious scholarships and fellowships to fund their graduate studies. Others take jobs in their fields of choice, pursuing advanced studies at a later date. Some have pursued career paths they could not have imagined when they first entered college. The Honors College helps to make all of this possible.
