Honors Institute

When you become part of the Honors Institute at Buena Vista University, you go places. Places like Custer State Park in South Dakota; the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota; and The Woodrow Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.

Honors students also take part in smaller classes, covering a wide range of subjects drawn from each of the University’s four schools. They often present a research project on a topic of their choosing, with funding provided by BVU.
