“"When students first meet their orientation leaders, they're usually very quiet. But it's the role of their orientation leader to get them comfortable with each other, make friends, participate in the different activities. If students have any questions they should feel like they can ask that question without being judged or that they shouldn't ask - there is no such thing as a dumb question when it comes to orientation.”

Curry College Honors Program is configured in two parts in order to address the particular educational difference between the first year and the sophomore, junior, and senior years:
First-Year Honors, open to Curry merit scholarship winners and to students whose high school record demonstrates a capacity for high academic achievement, provides first-year students an opportunity to form a learning community on a core topic with peers, faculty, and student mentors. Students take one First-Year Honors course together each semester, attend out-of-class meal meetings, and have the choice to live with other Honors students on a designated floor in one of Curry's residence halls. Participation in the First-Year Honors Program will be noted on students' Curry transcript.
Honors Scholars is offered to sophomore and junior students whose cumulative grade point average is 3.3 and higher, and also to students who are personally sponsored through the GradPath option. The Honors Scholar program is open to continuing education students who can arrange a schedule to meet the regularly scheduled courses.
"At first you hear the word 'Honors' and you think you'll be constantly stressed about papers and tests, but it's not really like that. It's a lot of discussion-based learning where you are able to hear opinions and ideas from students from all the different majors. It creates a classroom style that is unlike anything you get in high school. I definitely encourage first-year students to try it,"says Jared Berman '17.
