My name is Michael Snarr and I am the director of the Honors Program at Wilmington College. The program offers many opportunities for students to shape who they are and who they want to become.
In the classroom students will address current subjects. Both Global Issues and English 101, taken in their first year, will allow students to engage in challenging conversations and topics to expand the way they think and view issues. These courses will build a strong foundation for students to continue to grow during their journey through college.
Throughout the first year, Honors students are engaged in various service opportunities. Two of the more popular opportunities are Cardboard Village, a simulated homelessness event designed to raise money for the local homeless shelter, and serving food at Your Father’s Kitchen, a local ministry which serves six hot meals per week (You may have seen it featured on the Rachel Ray show last year).
The Honors Program is not only an academically challenging class curriculum, but an opportunity to build a unique, well-rounded resume of service and leadership – with a lot of fun mixed in! Please consider joining us! The first step is to apply for admission, but do so soon. You can apply online at www.wilmington.edu.
Follow us and watch for pictures from some of these events on the Admission Facebook Fan Page. I hope you will consider attending Wilmington College and joining the Honors Program. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 937-382-6661, ext. 436.
