Dear Parents and Families,
As the end of the semester nears and finals begin, seniors are inching toward the finish line, and getting ready to engage in activities, leading up to Commencement.
We send sincere congratulations to all the families of our graduating seniors. Commencement is a special occasion for the University and its students, as well as their family and friends. It is a time to celebrate as students move to the next chapter in their lives. We know that your love and encouragement has made all the difference in their ability to succeed. As students join our alumni ranks, please know that you too, will always be a member of our University family.

Every spring, we take great pride in featuring the student leaders and organizations from across the campus that won awards for their contributions to the University community. This article features the students who were recognized at the recent SGA Awards program.
Academic Notes & Highlights
Our Honors Program Director Linda Kobylarz earlier this month received the Honors Professional of the Year award by the Northeast Regional Honors Council. The organization is dedicated to the encouragement and support of undergraduate honors learning. This prestigious award recognizes outstanding education professionals who demonstrate a strong commitment and passion for honors programming.
“Linda is a notable example of how Post University makes is personal for a student. She truly wants each student in the program to succeed. Beyond her dedication to the program, her charisma and passion is what captures students to join the program. She gives light to creative service projects, academic endeavors, and countless new relationships,” said Post University Provost Dr. Elizabeth Johnson.
Ms. Kobylarz has been the director of the Honors Program since 2012. After a successful launch for the on-campus community, she expanded the program to University’s online students in 2020. Today, the Honors Programs now includes over 1,200 students who follow a rigorous academic path that fosters academic excellence, community-involvement, leadership, while building a foundation for lifelong learning. Several University undergraduates, who were part of the Honors Program, have also earned recognition as Commencement Valedictorians, including one student who was recognized with a Fulbright-Mitac Fellowship. Graduates from the Honors Program typically enroll in graduate school or seek positions in their chosen fields.
