Striving for Our Best and Brightest Selves: Making Honors Central to the Campus Community
Morgan, Steve
Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, v16 n2 p187-192 Fall-Win 2015
The fall 2014 entering honors class as Westminster College was drawn from the largest applicant pool in the program's almost three-decade history. Far from focusing on perks, 68% of these entering students claimed it was the interesting honors curriculum that caused them to submit an application. As for the larger applicant pool itself, the top reason students tend to apply to the honors program is the rigor of the program: students want to challenge themselves. Far from being elitist, honors at Westminster plays a crucial role in providing opportunity and access. In this article the president of the college provides a brief overview of the honors program at Westminster College.
