Now in its second year as Purdue's first residential college, the Honors College has enrolled more than 1,000 students in its first two classes. Those students had on average a 3.95 high school GPA and 95th percentile high school class rank. Purdue had just 711 students in its various honors programs before establishing a centralized, residential Honors College in 2013. The growing program currently houses Honors students in Duhme Hall, Shreve Hall and Third Street Suites, but a new Honors College residence hall will open east of Windsor Halls in the fall of 2016.
