  • Student Profile

    Twice a year, the Honors Program strives to have proposals accepted at the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) and Northeast Regional Honors Council (NRHC) conferences. When student proposals are accepted, the student then goes on a journey to craft his or her presentation for the conference. The student then attends and presents at the conference, acting as a representative of the Honors Program, and gaining access to coveted networking opportunities with Honors Program students from across the country.

    Students write proposals and make presentations across a variety of subjects. Most presentations are inspired by a project undertaken in an Honors course. Dozens of Honors students have proudly represented our Honors Program. There is one story, in particular, that stands out.

    Elvy Gerez graduated with a Bachelor’s in Hospitality Management in 2014. Elvy had been a member of the Honors Program since his first semester. During that freshman semester, Elvy decided to send forth a proposal to the NRHC conference to be held in Baltimore, Maryland. Elvy was accepted, traveled to Baltimore and gave a stellar presentation.

    A year later, Elvy was again accepted for the NRHC conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was in Philly that Elvy took the next step--he chose to run as a candidate to become a Student Representative for NRHC. He was elected!

    As a Student Rep, Elvy was expected to plan and execute all the student activities with a partner student rep for the 2014 NRHC conference in Niagara Falls, New York. As a hospitality major, he was able to put to use his skills learned, but he also grew tremendously as a person. Niagara Falls was a huge success. The student activities were some of the best attended in recent conference history.

    Of the experience, Elvy says...

    “It is always rewarding attending these conferences. Surrounding yourself with people that share similar ideas and visions is quite motivating. Because of the Honors Program, I’ve visited so many places in the country and opened my mind to so many ideas and possibilities. I would have never thought that I have would have accomplished so much academically. And serving as a Student Rep was an awesome and fun experience. I learned so much, and I will take these memories with me and share them with others for years to come.”
