So why should you join FMHC?
If you’re a current or prospective student at Grand Valley State University, you may be wondering what opportunities there are for you to succeed. The Frederik Meijer Honors College is one that you should definitely consider! Here are some of the reasons why:
- Develop Skills: Students will develop their abilities in the classroom allowing them to gain more than just information. When you hone your skills as a critical thinker, creative problem-solver, and polished writer, you can take on any challenge with confidence.
- Connect with Opportunities: Frederik Meijer Honors College faculty members will also put their experience and knowledge to work for you. That may mean helping you identify opportunities, such as scholarships, internships, and research; fielding questions about careers in our disciplines; writing substantive letters of reference that can make a difference, or even contacting a colleague at another university on your behalf.
- Improve your Writing Skills: One goal of the Frederik Meijer Honors College is to enhance students’ writing abilities. Throughout the Meijer Honors College, professors challenge the students to improve and enhance their writing skills, which are becoming increasingly important in today’s business world and in many professions.
- Set Yourself Apart: Graduate program admissions committees and employers look for people who set high standards for themselves and excel; those who prefer the less traveled but more challenging route.
- Join a Community: The Frederik Meijer Honors College also includes an integrated living and learning environment promoting intellectual curiosity and an enthusiasm for learning that will live on well beyond our students’ undergraduate years. The Glenn A. Niemeyer Learning and Living Center offers students the opportunity to take classes in the same building in which they live.
The Frederik Meijer Honors College is a resource to help students identify opportunities, make informed and reflective decisions about career goals, and to prepare students inside and outside the classroom to be competitive for the best jobs, graduate programs, professional programs, and fellowships.
