February Newsletter All-College Honors Program 2018-2019

Back to the books!

Welcome back to the Spring Semester! We hope you had a restful break and are ready to make 2019 your best year yet:)

January in Review

Honors Students conversed with Dr. Nelson Hopkins, the founder of Gates Vascular Institute, at this month's Lunch and Learn. Hopkins not only inspired us with his story of becoming a neurosurgeon, but his passion in his field also provided lifelong lessons for succeeding in any facet of life. We are grateful for his time spent with the Honors students!

Reminder: Honors volunteers almost every Monday at St. Luke's from 3:30-5pm. Consider taking a few hours out of your week to give back to those in need!
