It's during the fall semester that students begin nailing down internships and research opportunities for the following summer. Already, Honors College students are making preparations for summer international mission trips, gaining lab experience working alongside researchers, and bleeding green and gold as they apply for Line Camp positions. Here are just a few students' accounts of their experiences during summer 2013.
Thomas Hibbs, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Culture and dean of the Honors College at Baylor, reviews the new film "12 Years a Slave," which is based on a mid-10th century autobiography by Solomon Northrup, a free black man who was kidnapped and sold into slavery.
The Baylor Honors College has invited Robert M. McClelland, M.D., Professor Emeritus of Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, to speak at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in Barfield Drawing Room. McClelland will speak about his experiences caring for President Kennedy, operating on Lee Harvey Oswald and testifying before the Warren Commission in his lecture titled, "Parkland Hospital, November 1963: John Fitzgerald Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald."
Blog by Candi Cann, Ph.D., assistant professor of religion in Baylor's Honors College, about the disturbing and dramatic increase in suicides among those who are older and aging, as well as reasons that may prompt senior citizens to end their lives. Cann was invited recently to blog for the "Huffington Post" after she presented her research on the growing popularity of unconventional mourning practices, which she presented at the international conference of the Association for the Study of Death and Society.
