Welcome to the world of Westover Honors!
At Lynchburg College, the Westover Honors Program is the destination for students on the move. Your outstanding academic and leadership accomplishments make you a strong candidate for the Westover Honors Program. You will join nearly 200 students who excel at the highest levels. Westover Fellows are scholars, entrepreneurs, poets, athletes, scientists, leaders, and actors. We provide Fellows the opportunity and preparation to pursue their passion, in and out of the classroom. Westover Honors is where the College’s most accomplished students pursue their dreams.
You will find Westover Fellows in every major at Lynchburg College. Fifty-seven percent of Westover Fellows continue their studies at graduate school, with many receiving prestigious graduate school stipends, assistantships, and fellowships. Vanderbilt, the University of Virginia, Georgetown, the University of Chicago, Temple, Duke, and UNC-Chapel Hill are just a few of the graduate schools that have recently welcomed Westover alumni. Westover Honors has launched its students in successful careers in medicine, law, physical therapy, nursing, business, and finance, as well as a wide range of other outstanding professional opportunities. We are very proud of our students and alumni.
As the program’s director, I hope you will consider joining us. The Westover Honors Program is a vital learning community within the wider campus arena. My colleagues and I are here to help you build your future. We are committed to your success. As the Westover Honors Program celebrates its 30th anniversary, we are pleased to announce the establishment of the Westover Honors College. In recognition of all we have accomplished, the College is building a new Honors Academic Suite of study spaces, classrooms, lounges, and work-spaces exclusively for Westover Fellows. This new facility will be housed in a new living and learning community that will afford its students the most modern housing options available on campus. We are incredibly excited to welcome you at this pivotal moment in the history of the Westover Honors Program.
