Honors Program Head to Address National Council
Dr. Nick Flynn, director of Angelo State University’s Honors Program, will address a gathering of the National Collegiate Honors Council Friday, Nov. 17, in Philadelphia.
Flynn will present details of the Introduction to Honors class (HONR 1201) which prepares incoming freshman for participation in the Honors Program, including its design, components and purpose. He was put on the national council agenda after making this presentation to the regional Great Plains Collegiate Honors Council earlier this year.
The Honors Program began at ASU in 2001 and graduated its first class of honors students last spring. Freshmen students are accepted into the Honors Program based on SAT and/or ACT scores, high school class rank and demonstrated extracurricular activities. They are required to maintain a 3.25 GPA in all their classes, including the program’s core curriculum, and are given special recognition during graduation ceremonies. Flynn has directed the Honors Program since its inception.
