Calen Smith, a senior neuroscience major has been involved in many of the experiences and opportunities the Honors College offers. During his second year, he was the Historian for Student Honors Council. He has also participated in Honorable
Mention through several writing and editor positions including the photography, layout, and managing (incoming). He is going on his second year as an Honors peer mentor. Additionally, he has studied abroad in Glasgow through the Honors Principia
Consortium. Calen is currently working towards reprogramming the Student Honors Council to meet the needs of a growing community.
I am currently a junior majoring in philosophy and minoring in political science. On campus, I am part of Black Student Union and am also a peer mentor for the Honors College. My unique perspective and experiences with the honors college have
greatly inspired me to run for SHC office. As an SHC officer, I am working towards fostering a community of open communication between professors and students. I think it is essential that professors are listening to students’ concerns and
desires (and vice versa). I am also working to improve Nunemaker’s cozy environment with smaller scale and more modest events where students can hang out in comfort.
I’m a sophomore who just switched to the Biology Major, going for pre-vet so I can take care of dogs all day! I work at Nunemaker, am heavily involved in Cross-Country and Track, and volunteer at Tracy Aviary just down the road from
Westminster. So far I love Westminster and the Honors program, it has been a blast being a part of it, and I can’t wait for the next three years to continue learning! I think I am a great Honors council member. I’m always available,
literally all the time, and I’m way easy to find.
I am currently a first-year student at Westminster College. I am a Computer Science major and a Music minor. However, I also wish to obtain an Honors degree. As a first generation and minority student, I hope to provide a diverse perspective to the Student
Honors Council (SHC) and help better represent students like myself within the Honors College. I am working towards promoting more diversity within the Honors College. As a member of the Student Honors Council, I aim to propose and arrange events
that will connect with ideas and themes explored in Honors seminars. I believe that organizing SHC events connected to interesting topics discussed in Honors seminars will not only give Honors students the opportunity to engage in continued
discussion on these topics, but allow students to expand both their perspectives and interests in these topics.
I am a sophomore studying dance and pre-physical therapy as well as planning for the honors certificate. I am an honors peer mentor for the 2018-2019 school year and look forward to filling that role for the remainder of my time here at
Westminster. I also have the unique opportunity to represent the honors college this November at the National Collegiate Honors Council Conference on Richard and Alicia’s self-grading panel and hope to be involved in the honors college in
more ways similar to this. I would like to advertise and reach out more to students and faculty of the college about what the honors college and students are doing. When I say “doing” I mean the research projects, community outreach
and service, seminars, etc… that honors students and staff are involved in. Many people and even honors students themselves are not aware of what the honors college does and the unique opportunities and personalities it holds. I am really
interested in the increase in activities being held in Nunemaker for students and I would like to assist in their growth and continuation as well as offer my own ideas for events being held, like students sharing their research.
