Transcript Honor's Lounge The Honors College strives to provide academic enrichment through a collegial association of faculty and students working together for academic excellence, according to Ted Estess. Estess has been dean of the Honors College since 1993. From 1977 to 1993, he was director of the honors program, before it became a college. His main goal has always been to enlarge and enhance honors education at UH. "A wide range of students apply and are accepted to the program," he said. "On average, our students rank very well when compared to those of selective colleges." There are four types of courses offered for students in the Honors College. Specialty courses are designed CE- COAMITTEPTO EXCELLENCE specifically for honors students. Also available are honors versions of regular courses. Students may also opt to do independent study with a faculty member who supervises a special project, usually the senior honors Estess thesis, or they may arrange to receive honors credit for other courses. "The benefits of the program are twofold," Estess said. "First, it provides special academic opportunities for students who seek the challenge. Second, it attracts high-quality students to the university. "Besides tne academic benefits, the program also gives students an edge in finding work after graduation. Employers and graduate and professional schools look favorably on students who have sought out the challenges of the honors program. Employers are always interested in people who seek ways to stretch their limits, both intellectually and personally," Estess said. The major challenge facing students today is learning how to manage distraction. Estess said that with the wide variety of distractions bombarding students from every angle, students find it difficult to concentrate on getting the most out of their education. "The work of acquiring an education and of gaining clarity about oneself and one's commitments, requires attention and concentration," he said. "Getting a degree and becoming an educated person is not always the same thing. Becoming educated requires concentration of attention and spending time to allow the information to saturate your mind and being. We hope our program teaches students skills on how to become educated." - Fernanda del Villar
