Henderson 100

What is Henderson 100?

The Henderson 100 Program is a two-day event for the top high school juniors in Arkansas. The program is hosted each spring by current students of the Honors College and allows participants to experience college life at Henderson State University.

If I attend Henderson 100, what can I expect?

Henderson 100 participants will have the opportunity to visit college classes and participate in seminars designed to help them learn more about the academic disciplines in which they are interested. Each participant is housed in an on-campus residence hall with current Henderson students serving as hosts. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about the various extra-curricular activities available to them at college: departmental clubs, student government, honor societies, athletics, and a variety of other activities that enrich students’ lives outside the classroom.

How can I apply?

Applications are accepted beginning in February of each year. In the meantime, you may contact us or check with your high school counselor for more information.
