The spring 2016 “Philanthropy and the Public Good” class of 19 students presented $52,500 in grants to nine local nonprofit organizations during a ceremony Tuesday in the President’s Suite at McLane Stadium. The funds will allow these local organizations to take care of practical needs. Honors College students include Lauren Lamb and Evelyn Le (both in the Honors Program) and Danielle Cooper, Emmy Edwards, James Porter, and Elijah Tanner (all in the Honors Program and University Scholars).
Baylor student Chase Gottlich, a junior University Scholar major from Ormond Beach, Fla., is one of a select group of 165 American undergraduates to be selected to receive a prestigious David L. Boren Scholarship. Gottlich will use his Boren scholarship to do language study in Swahili in the African country of Tanzania.
It’s the time of year again when honors students must present and defend their theses. Thesis papers have the reputation of thick stacks of paper, academic research and heavy eyelids. However, that isn’t always the case.
