Barrett provides students opportunities to grow academically and socially. From connecting with the Barrett community at Poly Picnics, participating in community service in the Garden Commons or taking part in tutoring for Human Event papers, to multicultural events, painting nights or cooking demos, there are plenty of ways to meet new friends, develop professional skills and benefit from an honors education.

Welcome to the Barrett Honors College at the Polytechnic campus. My mission is to prepare students to become scholars in academia and leaders in industry.

The faculty, staff and I are here to educate and train you to achieve your aspirations, whether it’s finding that perfect career or pursuing advanced graduate or professional educational opportunities - either here or around the world. Barrett can help you find your place and raise your sights even beyond what you think is possible.

Here at the Polytechnic campus, our Barrett Suite in Lantana Hall features space exclusively for honors, students including two classrooms, study/work spaces, a lending library, and a lounge for events and gatherings. The Barrett Suite, with all its amenities, is the perfect place for students to work between classes or to spend the day studying. In addition to these student spaces, the suite houses the offices of our dedicated, full-time Barrett staff and faculty.
