TOGETHER, WE ARE FRANKE HONORS WILDCATS.
Grounded in the resources of a globally ranked research university, the W.A. Franke Honors College provides the opportunity to take small classes with the University of Arizona’s top educators, engage in research and creative expression with the University’s top researchers, designers, and artists, experience the world through study abroad, and create lifelong friends through shared experiences.
Seek ways of thinking, connect with others, create experiences and knowledge, evolve and grow as humans, and celebrate that growth. Don't wait to make an impact. The world needs you now.
Empower each student to reveal and pursue their passion with a deeper sense of wonder and purpose.
THE HONORS VILLAGE
The cornerstone of your Franke Honors experience is the Honors Village, a living and learning community that's so much more than a typical dorm.
