Twelve Seniors Presented Their Honors Theses at the 2018 NRHC Conference.

On Saturday, April 14, twelve seniors of the Honors Program presented their thesis projects at the Northeast Regional Honors Council Conference, in Providence, RI. The presentations were 15-20 min. followed by a question and answer period (see photo: Megan Pare). One HAS student, Ying Ye, presented her paintings at the new art exhibition, and she fielded many comments and queries about her artwork (see photo two).
