The Honors Program at Eastern Connecticut State University recognized 14 graduating seniors at its annual reception on May 14 in the J. Eugene Smith Library. The event celebrates students who completed an honors thesis, the program's capstone requirement.
Among those honored was Shannon Flynn of Milford, who majors in English. Flynn's thesis is titled "Dangerous Rhetoric: Stopping the Spread."
Eastern's competitive Honors Program admits up to 25 students per year. Scholars take five courses as a cohort and live together in Honors Themed Housing. Each scholar works with a faculty mentor in their major discipline on an Honors Thesis, an original piece of research-based scholarship.
The Honors Program is directed by Music Professor Timothy Cochran. For more information, visit https://www.easternct.edu/honors/index.html
