Benefits of Providence Honors?

Hi - I’m wondering if any current or past students in the honors program could comment on their experience. We know class sizes are small and there are interesting spring break trips available through honors, but other than that, what are the benefits? Are honors classes significantly more challenging and rewarding? Do honors students get priority class registration?

I assume that some students may have chosen the honors program at Providence rather than attending a more selective school; would appreciate any comments on that as well.

Thank you.
