Honors & Scholars


The Honors & Scholars Living & Learning Community (LLC) is open to first-year scholars within any of the four Honors & Scholars programs: 1794 Scholars, Chancellor’s Honors, Honors Leadership, and Haslam Scholars.  Haslam Scholars are required to participate in the LLC in their first year, while it is optional for all other programs. Participation and space in the Honors & Scholars Living & Learning Community is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Honors & Scholars LLC provides a residential atmosphere to enjoy dynamic experiences and hands-on activities that will immediately stretch scholars’ thinking through unique academic opportunities.  Within the LLC scholars will engage with their Gallup-strengths certified academic coach to find their natural talents and stretch them to align with academic and career goals.  Scholars will have exclusive access to Honors & Scholars specific programming, including lecture series, social activities, and service-learning opportunities all within the residence hall. By living and working within a community of like-minded peers and engaging with the H&S staff, scholars will be given an environment to grow, learn, and thrive.

The Honors & Scholars LLC will be located in Dogwood Hall for 2023-2024. All LLC locations are subject to change.
