As a member of the Wesleyan Honors Academy at Norris High School, I learned how to think at the college level. Through dual credit English courses, I learned how to read and write critically and effectively, while Advanced Biology exposed me to the merits and value of a liberal arts education.

Taking classes through the Wesleyan Honors Academy while in high school allowed me to begin earning credits toward my degree before I even stepped foot on campus. It gave me a sense of what to expect in college from the comfort of my high-school classrooms, which helped me to build the confidence to further my education at Nebraska Wesleyan.
