Honors Alumni Newsletter 2016

Thomas W Smith

A Letter from the Director

Dear Honors Alumni and Friends of the Honors Program,

Welcome to our annual Honors Alumni Newsletter!

In this issue, we celebrate what makes our Honors Program thrive day in and day out- from our students, to academics, to our faculty, we truly are a community of rich achievement and fellowship. We highlight student successes with features on Adam Vincent CLAS ‘16 and Lauren Rutherford CLAS ‘13, who have won the prestigious Fulbright Fellowship for 2016. We celebrate academic achievements with two new Honors Cohorts for the Academic Year 2016-2017.

For our annual faculty spotlight, we highlight the dynamic duo of Helena and Michael Tomko, both outstanding professors within Honors. And what is Honors without a love of, well, love! Check out our very own Honors Alumni Love Story, with former “Interdisers” Charlie Gillespie and Tara Powers.

Lastly, we feature our Senior Thesis Writers, our Honors Coffee Break in Caughlin Hall (the freshmen Honors Dorm), and an Honors Year In Review highlighting our semester events this year. 

As always, we invite you to join our Alumni Linked In group if you have not already done so, and to become an Alumni Mentor to our current students.

I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with you at upcoming events.  I hope this message finds you and your families well.

Dr. Smith
