SAU Honors College

The SAU Honors College was founded in 2003 by Dr. David Rankin, president of SAU. Dr. Lynne Belcher served as founding director and recently retired from SAU. The Honors College seeks and admits qualified students who seek to pursue a serious academic program with equally gifted peers and committed teachers. Honors classes are small and provide academically enriching opportunities for students and the faculty who teach them. Currently, SAU enrolls nearly 170 honors students and graduates about 66% of admitees in four years or less. Anyone interested in applying to the Honors College or seeking further information should contact the director, Dr. Edward P. Kardas at or at 870 904-8897.

Honors Grads Earn PhDs

 We received word recently that two graduates of the Honors College had earned PhD degrees. One was in Chemical Engineering (Corbitt, University of Arkansas) and the other was in Biology (Dhungana, University of Missouri).

Kiley Corbitt (right, and also an SAU Honors College grad) celebrates with her husband Dr. Joshua Corbitt.

Dr. Singha Dhungana and his wife celebrate his PhD in Biology.

The Honors College celebrates your accomplishments too. Congratulations. Of course you now know we will be asking to contribute once you get a job and become rich and famous :-)
