The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences recently held its fall 2010 Honors Banquet recognizing students in NSU’s Undergraduate Honors Program for their academic achievements and excellence.

To begin the ceremony, Don Rosenblum, Ph.D., dean of the college, and Ray Ferrero, Jr., J.D., chancellor of NSU, welcomed new and returning Honors students and acknowledged the Honors faculty’s service and leadership. Also in attendance were George Hanbury, Ph.D., president of NSU, and Frank De Piano, Ph.D., university provost and vice president for academic affairs.

The evening continued with a dinner, during which students and faculty members worked together to construct an Honors “monument” from a limited number of materials, including paper, tape, a marker, scissors, and paper clips. Each creation was designed to showcase participating individuals while highlighting their groups’ Honors ideals. Each group then presented its monument and voted for a winner.

Following dinner, Rosenblum introduced this year’s Honors Advocates: Inna Dumova, Kirstyn Hoffman, Marissa Hoffman, William Kotkin, Lauren Llorente, Evie Macaisa, Andrew Mikhail, and Siobhan Ming.

The event culminated with Rosenblum presenting this year’s First-Week Scholarships. Scholarship applicants are required to compose an essay explaining how they will benefit from, and contribute to, the Honors program. They are also required to submit two letters of recommendation from faculty members.

This year’s recipients include Farah Alli, Noemi Bermudez, Daniel Brookins, Lona Chen, Marissa Hoffman, Janice James, Beata Jeziorska, Lauren Llorente, Dona Rose, and Florencia Schwartz.

More than 250 students now participate in the NSU Undergraduate Honors Program. The program is designed to challenge participants through intimate, intensive honors courses and independent research pursued in collaboration with faculty mentors. Outside the classroom, networking opportunities connect Honors students to an ambitious community that pushes them to hone their analytical and critical thinking skills.
