29 graduating seniors receive Honors Program certificates Friday, May 10, 2013
Twenty-nine seniors who were active in Point Park's Honors Program earned Honors Program certificates upon graduating this academic year.
It's a record year for the number of seniors completing six honors classes or 18 credits. The students must earn a 3.5 GPA in all of their honors courses and a 3.0 GPA overall.
Many of the students also volunteered for Honors Program community service and leadership activities during their time at Point Park, including events with the Animal Rescue League, the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
Helen Fallon, director of the Honors Program, said that this year's seniors "have been extremely committed to their academic pursuits but have also done amazing amounts of meaningful work in local communities and businesses."
These students also have presented their academic research at multiple honors conferences across the region and country, organized symposiums and lectures on campus, held competitive internships all over Pittsburgh, and studied abroad in Peru, Macedonia and Italy, among other accomplishments.
