I plan to utilize the lessons I learned in high school to continue to excel in the classroom. I love the idea that by being in the JMU Honors program, I will have access to smaller classes, engaged faculty and experiential learning. I am excited at the thought of living and studying with other students who have my same academic focus and I look forward to taking advantage of every opportunity the program would offer. In summary, I think I would be the perfect candidate for the JMU Honors program because I have a desire to continually challenge myself and to strive for excellence. I want to make the most of my four years of college and, just like high school, I plan to excel academically.

Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
