要求二:荣誉影响项目

You’ll work individually with a faculty member from your major and develop an “Honors Impact” to complete so that you get an additional experience and insight into your career field – beyond what others in the class are doing. 本课程计入你的专业学分, and it is listed as an 荣誉项目 course as well on your transcript.

Honors Impact components might include one or more of the following:

  • An additional research-based project that culminates in an essay or presentation.

要求三:荣誉顶点研究 & 专业发展

The 荣誉项目 wants to give all students a chance to explore a project they care about. It might be in your major, or it might be something you’re just interested in investigating. 几乎任何东西都可以成为顶点研究项目, 包括研究论文, 新作品或创作, 示威活动, 实习和服务学习项目, 还有更多.  You work with a faculty member to complete the research and develop the appropriate project for you. 做完之后, you share your findings and celebrate your achievements with the Vincennes University community, your family, 还有你的朋友们.

另外, 你将协助主持由教育界发言人参加的研讨会, business, politics, 以及其他社区和思想领袖. These seminars serve as valuable networking opportunities in order to build relationships beyond Vincennes University.

Interested?

在完成这些要求后, you’ll have a broader knowledge of your topic (which you know employers will love) and just a better ability to think critically and solve problems (which employers constantly tell us are the two top qualities they want in employees, 无论专业或工作). You’ll develop friendships and cultivate connections with faculty and others that will follow you well after your years in high school. Last, 但肯定不是最不重要的, you will have saved a little money thanks to the stipends and scholarships provided for Honors Students. 听起来对大家都是双赢,对吧?
