Outstanding Undergraduate Students Honored at Annual Banquet

Students from NSU’s Undergraduate Honors Program joined faculty, administration, and distinguished members of university leadership for the Fall 2012 Honors Banquet on Sept. 20. Hosted by the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, the annual event recognizes Honors students for their academic achievements and excellence. The banquet also serves to welcome new students to the program.

The evening began with an interactive ice-breaker during which students, faculty, and administrators learned interesting facts about each other—such as which member of the group can complete a Rubik’s Cube or is multi-lingual.

Don Rosenblum, Ph.D., dean of the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, then welcomed the students, distinguished guests, and Honors faculty members, who not only serve as classroom leaders but also as mentors.

Before dinner, 10 students were awarded First-Week Scholarships. The recipients are new Honors students who, within their first week at NSU, secured two letters of recommendation from faculty members whom they had met at the start of the semester. These students also composed an essay about how they will contribute to and benefit from the Honors program. Awards were determined by a faculty committee.

The 2012 First-Week Scholarship recipients are Amal Ayoub, Katrina Fins, Cyril Manchery, Leela Mansukhani, Caitlin McCoy, Tam Nguyen, Kristoff Samm, Bansi Savla, Lillian Monique Valle, and Aadil Vora.
