Honors College

<p>I like small class sizes, and open discussion, found at LAC's. But also like the technology and social life of large universities. I'm thinking about going to Indiana University and entering the Honors college. Do I really get anything out of it besides small classes? Also how does the Honors College work? If I want to major in a business field how would that work out with the honors?</p>

<p>I know some kids in Honors College at IU. They don't really mention it however as it's kind of "geeky" for lack of a better word. Requirements are really clear: EITHER above 1350 on SAT's or top 5% of your class and you're automatically in. One clear advantage (especially at a school the size of IU) is you get a more personal advisor who helps you handpick your classes. You can take upper level classes earlier and honors seminars are smaller. There is an honors floor in one of the dorms and I know a kid who lives there and really likes it. You have access to different visiting speakers that are only for honors students. If you go into the IU website you'll find all sorts of stuff on the honors programs and its' benefits. I don't know how it relates to the school of business - I don't think much at all. Kelly is hard to get into. I know several first semester freshmen who are busting their butts to get good grades so they can transfer into Kelley.</p>
