University Honors Scholars Program

Honors Living Learning Community in Lawrence Hall


Students participating in the University Honors Program are eligible to live in the Honors Community which is located in Lawrence Hall. Living on campus with other Honors students is an exciting way to expand your experience in the Honors Program beyond the classroom. The Honors Community is designed to complement and support your academic work while also giving you opportunities to meet other honors students, be part of a dynamic and social community, and of course, have fun!

Lawrence Hall is one of St. Cloud State’s premier residence halls, featuring classic architecture with modern amenities like air conditioning and in-room sinks. While participating in this themed community is not required of Honors students, it is a great opportunity to engage with the Honors Program in a holistic way to maximize your experience.

Residents enjoy taking some of their classes with students they live with and engaging with faculty and staff through co-curricular programs and events. Living in the same residence hall with other honors students makes it easy to find friends, collaborate on projects, find someone to proof-read a paper, or simply watch a movie and relax. 

Here’s what other Honor’s students have to say:

“Living on the Honor’s floor is awesome because it keeps you in contact with all the other Honors students and puts a good, school oriented influence on your time spent on campus. It’s easy to study when everyone else is too.”

-Hannah Zimmerman, Sophmore

“The students on the floor seem to share the same values. Education is our priority in college, so the floor is helpful when it comes to studying. If I have a question when doing homework, chances are someone on the floor can help me out. Also, the people are so much fun to be around, and the new residents have the intellectual background to discuss topics on the news, or to joke about current issues.”

-Whitney Bina, Junior
