dc.description.abstract Stereotypes about Honors College students have always existed, both within the Honors College and outside of it. The stereotypes range from Honors College students having no social life at all to being extreme over achievers and only caring about grades and resume building. Whichever stereotype was chosen, it was used to generalize every student within the Honors College. Rachel and I created a video documentary portraying the diverse backgrounds and campus involvement of Honors College students. We surveyed over 200 Honors College students asking about their background and involvement on campus and chose 12 of these students to interview. As we interviewed we also gathered the thoughts of students on the strengths and weaknesses of the Honors College and formatted the answers into a paper format. We used this paper to provide suggestions to better improve the Honors College experience for future students.
