I am a third year student majoring in Paper Engineering. My hometown is Detroit, MI. Although I love the city life, I also enjoy rock climbing, exercising, camping and taking pictures in nature. The Lee Honors College is one of the most inclusive places on campus. I fell in love with how well the honors college provides students with opportunities through social events, volunteer experiences, and faculty help to add significant value to their college experience on and off campus.





Eboni Brown

Hello! I am a passionate and caring person eager to help. It is because of this that I have decided to pursue nursing. This fall I will be starting my sophomore year, which will also be my first year of nursing school! When I am not stressing over my studies I can be found watching Netflix, playing video games, listening to music, or even reading a good book. One of my favorite places to relax or study, (it depends on the day), is the honors college. It is a great space for me to get everything I need done. It even serves as a great space to socialize as well. The honors college is a great space to meet new people and interact with mentors, professors and other faculty members. I love all that it has to offer and am grateful to have it as a resource.

I am an idealist. I'm upbeat and optimistic and am very involved in social and environmental activist movements here in the community. I like to laugh and dance, and I teach Zumba here on campus. I am a second year student double majoring in Gender and Women's Studies and Social Work with a minor in Spanish. Reading, writing, dancing, and laughing with my friends and family are my top hobbies. I also play jazz trombone and piano, and play trombone in a band.

Hello! I am excited to start my sophomore year at Western as a Graphics and Printing Science major. In my free time, you can find me reading, binge watching TV shows, going to yoga classes, or traveling. My favorite color is red, I love big cities, and graphic design is one of my passions. I would say that my favorite thing about the honors college has to be the inclusivity. There’s never a moment where it feels like you don’t belong here, and it's fantastic.

Hola! I'm a third-year student from the Dominican Republic majoring in Anthropology and Sociology. I'm curious and skeptical about other ways of living around the world, and I enjoy a lot working and interacting with people from different cultural backgrounds. Nature is my best friend and traveling, eating, hiking, camping, going to the beach, reading books and spending time with family and friends is how I fulfill my life. What I most love from the Lee Honors College is how you can feel the support of a family even when you are thousands of mile away from home.

I am a second-year student majoring in Hydrogeology with a minor in Group Science.  I have lived in a few states but have spent most of my life in Channahon, Illinois.  Some of my favorite things to do are exploring in nature and attempting to capture the beauty with photography. Some of my favorite things I have done are hiking mountains, white water rafting, and cave exploring.  Within the walls of the honors college you can feel that same sense of adventure because you are immersed in a culturally diverse atmosphere flooded with driven, friendly and fun people. In the honors college you can experience so many different activities that you just never know what you will discover, you just know you will discover something worthwhile.
