The Oral Roberts University Honors Program attracts a significant number of students each year, both as incoming freshmen and currently enrolled students, seeking a richer academic experience. While the honors program offers a higher-level academic challenge, its value lies beyond what is simply learned in the classroom. The program contributes to the intellectual, social, and spiritual development of its students, but its greatest value lies in its ability to synthesize these components into a whole-person education that is greater than the sum of its parts.
