Since its inception in the 1960s, the Lee Honors College at Western Michigan University has been proud to celebrate the accomplishments and achievements of its students and alumni. We continue this tradition here, and encourage you to share your awards, significant events and news with each other and the honors college community.

"I am so happy I joined the LHC family during my sophomore year. The LHC made me realize I wasn't just a face in the crowd and that college wasn't just academic–it's building relationships, challenging yourself and surrounding yourself with people who believe in you." ~ Madelyn Aittama, B.S. in biomedical science, minors in dance, psychology and chemistry, 2017, summa cum laude. Honors thesis: "Implementation of a Biology Summer Bridge Program for First-Year Biology Majors."
