Two years ago, as a part of our reaffirmation process for the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, we embarked on a new design for our honors program for undergraduates.  We accepted our first cohort into the program this fall, 40 students who bring with them the intelligence and grit to make a positive difference in all areas of life.  Today we will host prospects (and their parents) for the 2009 cohort for get-acquainted sessions on the campus.  Please let them know that we are glad that they are here.


The world is better because of our University Fellows, present and future.
