Hear from Denit scholars
"Students in the honors program care a lot about their education and school as a whole."
Denit honors student Frank Rodski appreciates the personal aspects of UB, including the fact that his professors know him by name. An aspiring lawyer (and future UB School of Law applicant!) who plans to become a legal consultant for business, Rodski has been in honors since his freshman year. He's still friends with many of the students he first met there, and still spends a lot of time in the honors lounge.

The funny thing is that I feel like I benefited the most. Thank you for this rewarding experience."

"Being an honors student isn't just about excelling in the classroom. It's about making your mark outside of class, by applying Knowledge That Works."
