What will we do next year??! Your interests can guide us! We could have a board game night, visit local museums, or bake cookies. Maybe we'll go together to the Fall Festival or to USI's theatre productions. Study sessions, stress relief breaks, hikes on the campus trails...let's work hard, plus have fun! In the spring, Honors will also volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to build a house in Evansville. 

LLC Mentor:

Dr. Sarah Stevens is your LLC Mentor!
“Hi! I’m the Director of the Honors Program and I’ll be your LLC Mentor. I love working with the Honors LLC because we’re usually a tight-knit community who cares about academic success AND also having fun. I’m open to hearing what kind of activities you’d all like to do next year. A bit about me: I’m a total geek who loves board games and Dungeons & Dragons. I write science fiction and fantasy—I’ve published a trilogy about a single mom whose 4-month old baby turns into a werewolf. I adore cats and, well, really all other animals, but particularly cats. I aspire to be a ‘crazy cat lady’ one day. I’m originally from New Jersey and I’ve lived all over the place. Right now, my Netflix queue features The Great British Baking Show, Aggretsuko, The Dragon Prince, and Outlander. I like most kinds of music and usually let my teenagers DJ in the car so that I’m not horribly out of touch, haha. My superpower is listening and I can’t wait to get to know you!”

is the Director of the Honors Program and Living Learning Communities. You can reach Sarah directly by email or call 812-461-5357.
