Making friends is an essential part of your college experience. Studies have shown that students are more successful when they live together on campus, share academic interests, and participate in social activities.
The Honors Wing, comprised of the Freshman Experience Wing and the Returning Honors Students Wing, is located in East Hall, one of the residence halls at UAA. Living in the Honors Wing is an excellent opportunity to live with students of similar academic commitment and abilities.
