Students, alumni, faculty, and associates came together on December 2 to celebrate student success during the Honors Program’s 11th-annual reception. Held at the Country Club of Waterbury, the event recognized several students who had reached milestones in the Honors Program. The provost, academic deans, and assistant academic dean had the chance to present October 2022 graduate Eliza Edwards her certificate, commencement stole, and an embossed padfolio and main campus student Anthony Neves his certificate and an embossed padfolio. Edwards completed her bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems online, graduating with Honors Program Academic Distinction, and Neves, a Communication and Media Studies major, recently earned Honors Program Recognition.
As part of the evening’s festivities, 10 students were presented with their official Honors Program fleece, having achieved the first milestone in the program. These students recently completed nine credits in honors courses, earning a B- or better in each course. Several associates from departments across the University were also presented with a fleece in recognition of their support of the Honors Program and the students who are part of it.
The reception also served as an opportunity for students to network with faculty and associates, talk about their experiences in the Honors Program, and listen to alumnus Melvin Vann III, ’18, reflect on how being in the Honors Program during his four years at Post has shaped his life and career.
