I was in the Honors Program when I was attending Cal Poly from 2002-2006. If you can get into it, go for it. It looks nice on your diploma. I have a BA in English and my diploma says "Bachelor of Arts in English with Honors." You have to take 8 honors classes before you graduate (a lot of them are GEs). Remember that your senior project counts as one of those honors classes, so really it's only 7 classes. The program tries hard to incorporate community service, interaction between Honors Program members (the Honors dorm for instance), etc, but for the most part, that is all optional. I chose to live in the Honors dorm my freshman year and I ended up regretting it. Everyone was really quiet and nerdy, which is cool if that's your thing, but it wasn't my thing. So if you plan on doing more socializing, don't do the Honors Dorm. Otherwise, I definitely recommed getting into the program. The honors classes are nice because most of the students want to be there and speak up in discussion, but in my experience, were no harder than they non-honors counterparts.

thanks for the input! I got into the Honors Program, but I'm dorming with the red bricks since I prefer to stay with my college.
