Message from Director Don Mykles
Graduation is a high point of the academic year and the Honors Program will recognize the accomplishments of another stellar class at the Honors Graduate Recognition Ceremony on May 17th.
There are 297 students graduating, which is our largest class in the history of the program! We anticipate that attendance will exceed 1,000 family and friends. The guest speaker is Dr. Jennifer J. Clark, a 1991 Honors graduate of Colorado State University. She double-majored in Biological Science and Anthropology and minored in French, earned her M.D. at Johns Hopkins Medical School, and completed her residency at Harvard Medical School. She is now a pediatric oncologist in the Denver metropolitan area. On a personal note, Jennifer worked in my lab as an undergraduate and her research resulted in a first-authored publication. Jennifer epitomizes what our Honors students strive for: rigorous scholarship, an intense curiosity, integrity, and exemplary service. She has saved the lives of many children and is admired for the care she gives to her patients and their families.
The goal of the Honors Program is to provide an enriched educational program of study for academically talented and motivated students at Colorado State University. Honors students benefit from small, discussion-based seminars taught by some of the University's finest faculty members, personalized academic advising, priority enrollment, opportunities for leadership, research and community service, and special scholarships. Many Honors students choose to live in one of our Residential Learning Communities.
If this sounds like the sort of college experience you are searching for, then the University Honors Program could be for you!
The Honors program is open to students in all majors and offers a flexible curriculum through two curricular options.
