The Honors program is known for its commitment to integrative and interdisciplinary learning. The Honors Learning Community, located in Spring Hall, provides additional opportunities for faculty engagement and student collaboration. Students form rich relationships in the Honors LC that persist throughout their studies at SLU.
Honors faculty will often spend time in the residence halls, facilitating discussions about self, SLU and the St. Louis community. This community also has a sophomore component for active participants who wish to continue in the community for a second year.
You must be accepted into the Honors Program and remain in good standing in order to live in the Honors Learning Community.

Berman has published many works on the metaphysical theories of Plato and Aristotle as they relate to the contemporary discussions in metaphysics on the nature of universals and particulars.
I love the Honors Learning Community because of the support we all give to one another, whether that be in academics or life. Every resident shows interest and concern for one another, as well as concern and appreciation for each other’s identities, encouraging one another to do more as an individual and as a community.Meredith Walker, Honors student
