Pedalono, Jordan; Frailing, Kelly – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2018
Drug overdoses are the leading cause of death for Americans under fifty years of age, having surpassed deaths from guns, HIV, and even car crashes. Clearly driving this trend is prescription drug misuse, especially of opioids. Of the over 62,000 drug overdose deaths in 2016 alone, a full third resulted from the misuse of prescription opioids such…

Honors educators frequently engage in conversations about the decline of interest in and funding for the liberal arts and humanities. Larry Andrews's essay "The Humanities are Dead!

Badenhausen, Richard – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2018
In this article, the author asks members of the honors community to interrogate the way they narratively frame honors experiences so that these constructs are as inclusive as possible. Employing admissions practices that do not disadvantage students from underrepresented backgrounds is crucial, but also essential is that they do not…

Vander Zee, Anton – Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, 2017
The five-paragraph essay is a hard genre to love. Its inverted-triangle intro has enlightened us with too many "dawns" of some monolithic "man." It reduces arguments, which tend to be rather subtle creatures, to the confines of a single-sentence thesis. It confects arguments in bland triplicate structure, as if any claim could…
