New Honors Student Experience

On April 18, Stephen and I welcomed a record-breaking group of prospective students to the Unity campus.  After a morning and afternoon of immersion activities with current students and faculty, we held a reception for prospective Honors Program students to meet with me and co-director Aimee Phillippi, and a vibrant group from our current Honors cohort.

Wildlife Bio folks talked about their experiences on projects like the Unity College Bear Study.
