Students accepted into the Global Citizen Honors Program at Olivet College
Dec 13, 2004

OLIVET, Mich. Eight students have been accepted into the Global Citizen Honors Program (GCHP) at Olivet College. The program is designed to meet the needs of motivated, highly talented students by offering enriched and demanding curricular and co-curricular experiences.

The following students were accepted into the program: Melanie Engels, a freshman from Battle Creek; Emily Ferguson, a freshman from Monroe; Lacey Ferro, a freshman from Jonesville; Corey Jager, a sophomore from Kalamazoo; David Lewis, a freshman from Marshall; Jessica Petkus, a freshman from Milford; Kelli Roe, a freshman from Galesburg; and Meghan Smith, a freshman from Rochester Hills.

Students were selected based on their academic record and a written essay discussing their interest and proposed involvement in the program.

The selected students will be asked to investigate global, interdisciplinary issues using critical analysis, independent thinking and creative problem solving. The GCHP will have three distinct academic experiences: honors class, honors option courses and an honors project, along with co-curricular opportunities to provide a comprehensive experience.

Olivet College received a $100,000 grant from the McGregor Fund to implement the program. The first honors course, Americas Global Interaction Honors Course is set to begin in the 2005 spring semester, according to GCHP director Matt Wait.
