- Research & Experiential Learning
Your UHC community is full of students who are problem solvers and welcome a challenge. Your goal: to make your world a better place, and take innovative approaches to get there. The UHC atmosphere is supportive, and the classes emphasize thinking for yourself and discussions instead of lectures. UHC professors welcome mentoring relationships and value drawing knowledge out of their students, instead of simply telling them the answers. Your UHC experience is designed to give you the confidence to be who you are, and to decide where you want to go from there.
Students in the University Honors College come from diverse backgrounds. There is no "typical" UHC Student. While most students at the UHC come from Oregon, we have a number of students from across the country and more than a few international students. UHC students come directly out of high school as well as transfer into the UHC while at OSU, or while studying at another college.
Since the UHC is open to any major, our students come from majors throughout campus. They have a variety of interests outside of academics. They spend time volunteering, playing music, dancing, traveling, and just having fun!
