UMD Living and Learning Programs and Honors College Programs
Hi, I'm getting a little confused on the differences between all of these. So I've heard a lot of different and interesting programs and terms thrown around like QUEST, FIRE, Hinman CEOS, FLEXUS, and I'm just kind of getting confused with these and the honors college programs. So I can do an Honors College Program and these living and learning community programs? Can I do multiple of the programs I talked about? What's the difference between them? Thank you so much! And if anyone can speak to GEMSTONE or University Honors that would be amazing. Thanks!20 replies
