Merrimack Honors offers dedicated honors housing, complete with honors community activities and specially chosen honors RAs, for all students in the Honors Program.
The Honors Community
The Merrimack College Honors Program is inspired by St. Augustine’s belief that studying with friends is the best environment for learning, challenging oneself and for discovering one’s passions. In describing his early education, he fondly recalls,
“I found all kinds of joy when I was in the company of my friends- talking, reading engaging books together – going from the lightest joking to taking of the deepest things and back again” (Confessions 4: 8, 13).
Our hope is the Honors House reflects the values proposed by St. Augustine.
