3 Theme Questions With... Thomas Holtz

Throughout the year, our Scholars faculty and staff across programs will share their responses to three questions around our 2018–19 annual theme, "Migrations: Populations and Practices on the Move." The questions typically relate to a resource directors are using in class. Following is the second entry in our “3 Questions With…” series.

Each year, a selection of students who recently earned their Scholars citation are honored with Outstanding Academic Achievement and Outstanding Citizenship Awards for exceptional performance in academics or contributing significant time, effort and support to the Scholars community. Citation Awards involve a nomination, review and selection process. Students who have recently earned their Scholars citations are also honored for exemplifying the founding ideals and values of College Park Scholars. PHOTO: Katie Bemb

Scholars Alumni Honored at Citation Awards

More than a thousand College Park Scholars arrived on campus in fall 2016, the largest freshman class in Scholars history. This citation class went on to make an impact across the community, including raising a record-setting $19,315 for charities in the Scholars Cup competition. On Friday, Sept. 24, College Park Scholars celebrated this class with our annual Citation Awards Ceremony.

What Scholars Did on Their Summer Break

It’s a perennial back-to-school query from teachers: What did you do on your summer vacation? When we asked some of our Scholars students and alumni, they had a lot to tell us… and not surprisingly, they made the most of their summer break. Now that students have settled in on campus and the semester is a few weeks in, we highlight some of our impressive Scholars accomplishments from over the summer.
