On May 7th, 2015, the Chancellor’s Honors Program graduated approximately 150 students to wrap up the 2014/2015 academic year. In his student retrospective, Robert Nowell (’15 CHP) encouraged honors students to change the world, to actively seek out future opportunities, and to view their honors graduation as an endorsement and a trajectory into future success. The keynotes address, given by Rev. Michelle Warriner Bolt (’97 CHP alum and Harvard graduate) spoke of graduation not only as an academic rite of passage but also spoke of graduation as a life transition–a chance to look back on one’s growth and development over time to create perspective of where one is right now.
All Chancellor’s Honors Program students write a thesis comprising original research, travel or study abroad internationally and/or complete intercultural projects, and progress through a rigorous honors curriculum. Many graduates go on to study at professional schools such as law, dentistry, and medicine, proceed to graduate schools where they will being advanced studies, and begin their careers in their field of study.
The office of Honors and Scholars Programs congratulates all of its graduates and their families.
