38th Annual Honors Month: Celebrating Scholarship
April is Honors Month, a time set aside by the university to celebrate scholarship, academic excellence, research and service-learning. We showcase the efforts of and recognize students for outstanding scholastic achievement. On the final Saturday night of Honors Month, a banquet is held to honor students and their families and cap a month of induction ceremonies, service events, seminars and topical discussions, awards programs and student learning activities.
Jodi Thesing-Ritter, Associate Dean of Students in the Dean of Students Office, is the coordinator of Honors Month and Diane Bilderback and Paula Stuettgen serve as assistant coordinators Honors Week. A steering committee comprised of volunteer members from the sponsoring local, national and international interdisciplinary, departmental and professional honor societies makes plans for Honors Month and the Blugold Honors Banquet.
