SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY DEC 31, 2016

 

 USF Sarasota-Manatee’s Honor’s Program, launched in 2009 to challenge students is seeing a spike in applications for the spring term with more than 26 students seeking formal entry. Typically, about a dozen apply to the program. Honors Program Coordinator Dr. Melissa Sloan attributes the wave of interest to a push by her and other faculty to spotlight the program. This past fall, professors urged top students to apply and dozens attended an information session at Selby Auditorium. The average GPA of interested students was 3.76. The program is open to high-achieving juniors in any academic major, but is limited to 15 students yearly. Applications are due mid-fall for the cohort that begins the following spring. Last year, five students were accepted.
