The Honors College provides students with interdisciplinary courses which are designed to encourage thoughtful collaboration of wide-ranging topics and ideas. Dr. Annalisa Calini’s Spring 2021 Honors course, HONS 216 Conceptual Tour of Contemporary Mathematics, proved that the arts can be an ideal medium through which to explore mathematical concepts.
While a honors math class may not be your first stop to find such amazing artwork, these students created some impressive artwork. Check out a sample of their artistic assignments and projects from this past semester in the blog post below!

Here is the Honors Class of 2021 by the numbers! 🎊
WHAT’S NEXT for Honors senior Allyson Pace? After graduating with a degree in Biology this May, Allyson is headed to London! She will be attending the Royal Veterinary College of London to complete her Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine & Surgery (BVM&S), the British equivalent of the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree here in America.
Allyson has always had a passion for animals, and that passion has provided her with leadership opportunities that are carrying her into a post-grad career.
“I probably would not have imagined myself being in the leadership positions I’m in today. I serve as the president of the Pre-Veterinary Society and captain of the Equestrian team. I took the Principles of Leadership Honors course in my junior year where we learned essential skills and qualities of a leader that I still use today. Both roles have taught me so much about working as a team and learning problem solving skills, which I believe stood out on my veterinary school applications.”

We had a wonderful time catching a study break this past Saturday at Stono Preserve! The Honors College Advisory Board arranged a private birding excursion on Stono Preserve, where Advisory Board members and students took a guided nature tour and explored the 881-acre property along the Stono River and the Intercoastal Waterway.
A huge thank you to all who joined in on this safe and educational outdoor excursion 🦅
WHAT'S NEXT for Honors alum and Masters grad Ally Lesher? Ally graduated in 2020 with a double major in mathematics and data science with a concentration in business analytics. She then remained at the College to complete a Master's in Mathematical Sciences as a part of the College's 4+1 program. Post-graduation, Ally has accepted a job as a data scientist with the Naval Information Warfare Center, where she will combine her academic passions as a member of the Center's data science/analytics team.
Amongst her pursuit of several academic passions, Allyson still found time to be involved in extracurricular activities like CofC's club crew team and Charleston Excursion.
"Do what makes you happy, not what other people think you should do. I may have had to sacrifice some sleep and socialization because I was always so busy, but I loved everything I was involved in. Everything I did in my life brought me joy and I’m glad I never did give anything up because someone else thought my life would be better with less in it."

Congratulations to Honors students Phia Gierszal '22, Hails Tanaka '22, and Kristen Snyder '23 for receiving Goldwater Scholarships — one of the highest honors for undergraduates studying in the STEM field.
These students were among 410 students selected out of a nationwide pool of over 5,000. The Scholarship aims to foster and encourage outstanding students to pursue research careers in STEM fields. The College has produced 16 Goldwater Scholars since 2012, and this number continues to grow in part due to the College's high caliber of students and faculty involvement in supporting undergraduate research.

WHAT'S NEXT for Honors senior Vernon Kennedy Jr.? After graduating with a degree in Molecular Biology, Vernon is headed to Baltimore, MD to work at the NIH as a Post-baccalaureate Fellow in the Intramural Research Training Award (IRTA) Program. He’ll be working on a project within the Institute on Aging, studying the secretory function of the choroid plexus.
Although Vernon fell in love with research and continues to excel in the field, this was not always the case.
"I came into college strictly premed. At that time, I knew that research was something I had to do in order to be competitive for medical school, so I sort of viewed it as just another prerequisite. It wasn’t until I got deeply involved with the scientific process that I saw how much I needed science (not just medicine) to be a continuing part of my career."

Within the past year, Charleston has seen several business closures and local businesses have had to adopt new strategies to stay afloat.
