“EHP is a wonderful program where you can find a community of people that care about you and support you. My college experience would have been so different if I hadn’t been a part of EHP because I don’t think I would have made the close friends I’ve made in EHP anywhere else.

Critical Encounters with Professor Scot Douglass is the most important class you will take in college. It teaches you about what really matters in life and to remember that there is a beautiful world beyond your textbook that you should go experience. The class also strengthened our friendships, as we would often continue the insightful discussions beyond the classroom with each other.”

“For me, EHP goes beyond its name. EHPers may be honors students on paper (academics, performance in extracurriculars, etc.) but what really sets EHP apart from any other honors program or society is the creative, collaborative, community space that the students, Scot Douglass and his family form.

To us, being in EHP means being engaged in both engineering and in life, embracing ourselves and each other as individuals who each have something unique and special to offer each other, having a thirst for knowledge and understanding, and working with each other, rather than against each other, to each find our own successes and victories.”

“Being a part of EHP means being part of a community that invites me each and every day to be the best version of myself– yes, academically and professionally, but also personally. Being a good engineer– being a good anything– rests on one’s ability to act with integrity, sincerity, honesty, and passion. These things can’t develop or be sustained in isolation.

EHP fostered the sorts of conversations and friendships that continue to bolster these traits in me, even beyond my time at CU. These relationships have sharpened my character, expanded my intellect, broadened my interests, and opened up a world of opportunity.”
