The Honors House at Davisson Hall offers highly talented students the opportunity to live in a community dedicated to equipping Christian students for the pursuit of academic excellence. See photos and video of the Honors House.
This living environment for Honors Program students breaks down the boundaries between classrooms and dormitories. The dorm features a resident director who is a Christian scholar, such as an Honors alumnus or alumna. This integrates housing with academics, which ensures a smooth transition to the Honors curriculum and a successful first year at Oklahoma Christian. The dorm also features successful upper-class Honors students who serve as resident mentors and tutors.
The Honors House is a residence hall designed to provide a Christ-centered, dynamic learning environment focused on relationships for young leaders who are eager to make the most of their undergraduate experiences at Oklahoma Christian. The east wing is for male students, while female students live in the west wing of the building.
“Honors students are excited about Honors housing because it offers them unique amenities such as study rooms, individualized tutoring, and spaces for fun and relaxation,” said Cady Jackson, Honors Fellow and past Resident Director. “Students gain the added benefits that help in study and building community, but they do not lose the fun and interactive part of dorm life on our campus.”
OC dean of students Neil Arter said, “It is our experience that students will hold each other to a higher standard. It’s not our goal to separate the Honors students from the rest of the student body. Instead, we hope to create an environment for Honors students to have an even greater impact on our campus.”
