WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:06.000 music 00:00:06.000 --> 00:00:13.000 My favorite part of the Honors Program is probably the just community that you have once you're already coming here 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:17.000 so as soon as you start, you already have this community of like-minded students and faculty 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:20.000 that are very academic based and want you to do your best. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:24.000 So even if you come in not knowing anyone, you kind of already have that to grow upon 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:28.000 and then reach out and meet new people as you take other classes and stuff. 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:33.000 Another thing that we do in Honors is we have to complete a thesis project by the time you graduate. 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:37.000 So my thesis I'm currently working on is on fruit flies 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:41.000 and whether they have a directional magnetic preference in a maze to go north or south. 00:00:41.000 --> 00:00:45.000 This was kind of based off research I was already doing in the biology department 00:00:45.000 --> 00:00:47.000 but I just tweaked it to kind of make it my own. 00:00:47.000 --> 00:00:50.000 I've really enjoyed the process and it's really helped me grow as a student. 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:53.000 Get your degree with Honors.
