Indiana University of Pennsylvania--Robert E. Cook Honors College
Indiana, Pennsylvania
Summer Honors Program for High School Students--
Imagine a place where you are encouraged to imagine. To think. To question. To disregard the obvious, the easy.
To search for the deeper answer. Then question that answer. Where you are joined by others who share your thirst
for discovery. Such a place exists. A community of scholars called the Robert E. Cook Honors College on the
campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
