Last weekend, the Honors program took its annual trip with first-year students to the Cayuga Nature Center, and we got some great shots and videos of the skits that each seminar performed! Check out the photo slideshow from Professor David Flanagan and the skits from Exploratory first-year Megan Holman!

Favorite part about IC: “The people. Throughout my time at IC, I have been able to collaborate with my peers and meet people from all walks of life. Additionally, the faculty have been such pillars of support and inspiration.”
Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken and why: “It’s definitely a tie. First, I would have to say Staging History with Claire Gleitman. It was the first honors seminar that I have been able to combine my honors minor with my Theatre Studies major. It provided me to look at plays through a different lens than my major classes. However, I am also so in love with the honors seminar I took in London with Bill Sheasgreen, the director of the ICLC called City as Text. We spent every Monday going on walks throughout the city, using the city of London as out textbook.”
Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors program: “LONDON. I had the opportunity to study abroad in London for the Fall of 2013. It was by far the greatest experience of my entire life. I learned so much about myself and made memories that I truly will never forget. My gosh that is so cheesy, but so true.”
We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Student Spotlight series.
