dc.description.abstract After speaking with several incoming honors college freshman, I realized that these students were not sure why they were joining the honors college. As I reflected on my life a couple years ago, I quickly decided that I also had lacked much reasoning for joining the honors college. As a high school honors student, it seemed the logical next step in my educational career. In addition, I remember being told the two main perks that every honors college knows: extended library rental periods and priority scheduling. However, because I had completed a lot of time in the honors college, I had come to appreciate all of the other amazing features that the honors college offers its students. I decided to create a brochure that could be distributed to high school seniors when they come to visit. To collect input, I sent out a survey to honors juniors and seniors, which asked several questions about their experience in the honors college. After receiving the responses, I analyzed the data to look for the most common answers. Honestly, I was surprised with the variety of answers that I obtained, some of which I had never considered. After several sessions of examining all of the data, I was able to create my final project, the brochure.
