Welcome to your honors experience at the Arizona State University Tempe campus. Barrett Honors College is here because you are here.

You are an integral part of this honors community, where you can connect with other engaged students as you learn, grow and thrive personally and professionally. The Barrett Tempe faculty and staff are excited to get to know you and support you in achieving your goals as an undergraduate and beyond.

I hope you will take advantage of all that Barrett has to offer, including student-centered programs and organizations, opportunities for community service and involvement, professional internships and undergraduate research, global engagement and study abroad, and much more. I look forward to seeing you at honors events and activities on the Tempe campus, from the Mark Jacobs Dining Hall to the Barrett Student Center and from the Great Court to the Gold Dome. Meeting with students is always the highlight of my day!

With warmest wishes,
