Honors at North Dakota State University
The Honors Program at North Dakota State University is designed to be a stimulating and supportive group of dedicated teachers and highly motivated students whose goal is to nurture intellectual ability and curiosity. As an interdisciplinary program compatible with any major, we draw faculty and students from across all fields of study; what the program's students and faculty share is a sense of intellectual adventure and the strong desire to be knowledgeable, independent thinkers. As Scholars, honors students take a very active role in their education, going out of their way to cultivate interest in new subjects, pursuing activities ranging from the creative arts to study abroad, and recognizing that an undergraduate experience can be more than just acquiring a degree.

Shakespeare @ The Guthrie 2015
Students from the Honors Program and the English department attended a March performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. This is the twelfth year of a collaborative relationship between Honors and English to sponsor a trip to the Guthrie. The annual event began in 2003 as an initiative of the Honors Program and its Student Council. The trips, by chartered bus, have been underwritten with funds from English, Honors, and the Dean of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; these contributions have broadened participation by substantially reducing ticket and travel costs to each student. To make the most of the experience, arrangements are made each year so that, in addition to a seeing a performance by one of the country’s most respected theater companies, students are able to participate in a talk-back session with the actors following the play during which they can ask the actors questions about the play, their interpretation, the director’s vision, and other aspects of the performance. Past performances include Henry V (2008), Macbeth (2009), The Winter’s Tale (2011), and Julius Caesar (2012), and Hamlet along with Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (2014).
