Admitted Honors Program students and their families joined University Honors Program faculty and current students for a day in the life of an Honors Program Student. They participated in two sample honors seminars: 1) Explorations of the Narrative Self by Ed de St. Aubin, Associate Professor of Psychology, whose research covers a number of topics - most of which explore the manner in which contemporary adults create and find meaning in their lives. 2) John Curran, Professor of English, gave a sample seminar based on his research and teaching interests that cover a wide range of authors, genres, and ideas from sixteenth and seventeenth-century England. He has devoted efforts to the Renaissance English sense of the past and more recently to the theological questions that separated Protestants and Catholics. Program Details

The Student Panel included at left: Catharine Skoog, a junior in the College of Arts & Science; Rebecca Lambert, a sophomore in the College of Health Sciences; and A.J.
