A legacy of vision and values. A tradition of academic excellence. A future of great promise. That passion for success with honor at Penn State and beyond defines the Schreyer Honors College.

We say we are "shaping people who shape the world." This is why Mr. Schreyer used to say that he was "bullish" on our future, because Penn Staters are ready to make this world a better place.

Schreyer Scholar Emily Snow

I think being in the Schreyer Honors College definitely helped me have a leg up in finding research opportunities and having professors confident in my ability to take on the responsibility of research. I’m working with stem cells and regenerative medicine. I was awarded an Erickson Discovery Grant this past summer and then the College gave me a summer grant to work on my research.
