Macaulay Beyond the Classroom
Macaulay Honors College allows for an enhanced college experience. Outstanding educational opportunities await both on and off CUNY campuses. Macaulay students are encouraged to seek those opportunities and to seek those opportunities outside the classroom which complement academic pursuits.
Study abroad, internship, and service experiences are critical co-curricular activities for you. They greatly expand knowledge and further personal development, ultimately allowing you to better determine priorities, values, and goals. It's up to you to take honors beyond the classroom.
