Nine students from the McDaniel Honors Program were selected to present at the Maryland Collegiate Honors Conference, held March 2–3 at Frostburg State University. Presentation topics were inspired by individual students’ interests and concentration. http://bit.ly/2pedXh5
We are so proud of first-year student Sarah Pennington for sharing her story on Megyn Kelly TODAY! Sarah is a Dorsey Scholar at #McDaniel, which is the highest academic honor at the college, earning a full-scholarship, including tuition, room and board for all four years (value of more than $200,000), and a member of McDaniel Honors Program. She is also a passionate advocate for mental health awareness and has started a nonprofit called the Show Your Hero Project. https://www.today.com/video/meet-the-teen-who-overcame-anxiety-to-become-a-beauty-pageant-winner-1116499523629
McDaniel Honors Program students won three prizes and a standing ovation with History professor and program director Bryn Upton at the Maryland Collegiate Honors Conference. Madelyn Jackstadt earned a prize for best poster, while Mable Buchanan and Christina DeJoseph won prizes for best abstracts. http://bit.ly/2naKVOR
FYI, the National Constitution Center hosts great Town Halls, and there is an upcoming one about free speech on campuses, which will be streamed:
How does Honors housing fit into the housing lottery process? Nothing in the info. from Residence Life mentions DMC.
Thank you for a wonderful weekend and the honor of being a candidate (my son, not me) for the Dorsey Scholarship. We both enjoyed our time there and the taste of McDaniel. Everyone from the college was welcoming and engaging. And "The Hill" looked very pretty in today's snow!
Would the Room of Requirement like any jigsaw puzzles?

The Honors Program at McDaniel College seeks students who are in essence College Scholars. College Scholars are students who are intellectually curious, motivated to learn in and outside of the classroom, and intrigued by new ideas.

Going for Gold On and Off the Ice
A Discussion of the U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team’s Fight for Gender Equity
Monday, February 4th at 7:30pm
Decker Auditorium

In 2017, the U.S. Women’s National Hockey Team threatened to sit out the International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship unless USA Hockey agreed to give them equal treatment to the men’s team—not least in regards to pay. The women sought the same equipment, staff, per diems, publicity, and travel as their male counterparts. Guest speaker Dee Spagnuolo provided pro bono representation to players on during their fight that ultimately resulted in an historic four-year contract with USA Hockey. The team won the World Championship in 2017 and took Goal in Olympics in 2018. Dee continues to represent the players as they promote the ideals of gender equity in athletics and in the workplace.

President Roger Casey will lead a conversation with life sciences entrepreneur and 1987 alumnus Greg Merril on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m., when the McDaniel College SmartTALK series returns to Decker Center Forum. The event is free and open to the public.

An alarming rise around the globe of multi-drug resistant pathogenic bacteria inspired Merril to launch Adaptive Phage Therapeutics. The business develops therapies using targeted viruses — called phages — to kill so-called “superbugs” that are impervious to antibiotics. Based in Gaithersburg, Md., the company is co-founded by Merril and his father, Dr. Carl Merril, a retired NIH researcher, in collaboration with the U.S. Navy.

As a self-described “serial entrepreneur,” Merril has launched several startups in the life sciences industry, including a company that created simulation systems for medical training, a company that produced technology to make video games physically active and another company designed to detect possible concussions in young athletes. Join us to learn how this Psychobiology major is combining his scientific knowledge and entrepreneurial experience to meet a crucial need in the fight against deadly infections.

The hour-long event includes questions and answers from the audience. A live video stream of the event will also be available at www.mcdaniel.edu/livevideo. For more information, call 410-857-2292. Requests for interpreters can be made up to one week prior to the event by contacting [email protected]. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

We are days away from the start of the semester, some students are already on campus, it is like the calm before the storm. One week until the first day of classes, are you ready?

08/13/2018

Each year several Honors students study abroad and have a wonderful experience, but every year there are a few who want to but decide not to because of the structure of their academic program - they need to take certain courses in specific semesters, etc. To help with this, last year we created a new program to send Honors student to our Budapest campus in the spring semester of their first year (you know, before you major takes over your life)! The first cohort of students who took part in this program loved it and we are looking to form a new cohort this year. This is a great way to go abroad, you'll actually get ahead on Honors Program credits, and have the experience of a lifetime!
