How did you know the Honors College was right for you?
I first applied to the Honors College after seeing the emphasis that we place on a global community. This idea was and is still very important to me. After reevaluating my personal goals, I decided that Disciplinary Honors would be the best fit for me.

What has been your favorite Honors experience so far?
My favorite Honors experience has been the enhancements that I get to do for my courses. This past semester, I composed and performed a piece for a class on music since 1900. I was able to learn how to use a looper pedal to create this nine minute performance. I’m going to continue to develop this project as one of UNCG’s Artists in Residence next year. For one of my music history courses, I developed a presentation that I later presented at the UNCG Honors Symposium. The projects and skills I have developed for these enhancements have led me to other opportunities, and I am very grateful for that.

What does “Honors” mean to you now that you are here at UNCG?
Honors has come to mean the pursuit of a comprehensive understanding of our community and disciplines.
