"GHA continues to reach back into the past, pulling memories and relationships to the present." The Governor's Honors Academy has been creating opportunities and changing lives for rising seniors since 1984. It's a three-week experience on a college campus that exciting, invigorating, and intellectually compelling. Many students leave with friendships that last the rest of their lives. This year's program at Marshall University runs June 28-July 18, and it is free.
Your Dynamic World is a fitting theme for 175 of West Virginia's most dynamic students.
Read the class descriptions for GHA 2019. Although the classes will be different this year, you can get an idea of the kinds of exciting opportunities you'll have.
The 2019 Student Handbook includes information you will need about packing; policies and procedures; an introduction to the Marshall campus; and a welcome from the deans, instructors and residential staff. It will, of course, be updated to make it more timely, but it will give you a good idea about what to expect.
