Beyond the First Year

Programs of Distinction both inspire and challenge students who see the expansion of their educational horizons as endeavors going far beyond the classroom.  Students in Programs of Distinction don’t just finish assignments and projects, they seek out faculty as academic and professional mentors who can help them shape their careers.  They undertake challenging coursework and extra-curricular activities, and develop research and service projects that make them competitive in graduate school and within their chosen professions.
