"When you graduate, you're not going to work with people of the same discipline, (instead), you're going to be in spaces where there is engineer, finance, or art majors; HonorsX exposes us to that and to learning how to work with different perspectives and finding common grounds, which you'll have to do once you graduate and begin your career."
