"Preparing for graduate school means embracing long hours of research, and by engaging with research early in my college career through the LCC Honors Program I was able to open the door to doing research in some of the Psychology Labs at the U of O. This is important, because lab experience in a world class psychology research atmosphere not only helped me to prepare for grad school by building my CV, it also allowed me to get closer to experiencing my chosen field firsthand.

Some of the honors classes I took at LCC were far more intellectually rigorous and academically demanding than even 400-level majors courses, and experiencing courses which really challenged me to do more than the tried and true "Read, Regurgitate, Forget" cycle of multiple-choice education was a major boon. Some of the courses which are going to be picked apart for how well I did in them (i.e., majors courses) seemed very easy thanks to this preparation, and I did well in them."
