Sunday Star - - LIFE -

CON­WAY, S.C. — Two Queen Anne’s County stu­dents were ac­cepted in the Hon­ors Col­lege and Cen­ter for In­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary Stud­ies es­tab­lished at Coastal Carolina Univer­sity on Oct. 12.

The stu­dents are Re­becca Jones, a ma­rine science ma­jor from Ch­ester, and Emily D’Or­sa­neo, a bi­ol­ogy ma­jor from Centreville.

They are among the first 700 stu­dents housed in the new col­lege.

The HTC Hon­ors Col­lege and Cen­ter for In­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary Stud­ies will fea­ture many new ini­tia­tives and a re­vised cur­ricu­lum. It will sup­port stu­dents who have ties to ma­jors and de­part­ments across cam­pus: from hon­ors stu­dents to in­ter­dis­ci­plinar y stud­ies stu­dents, who build their own, in­no­va­tive aca­demic ma­jors.

“This is a ma­jor mile­stone for Coastal Carolina Univer­sity,” said Ralph By­ing­ton, CCU’s provost and ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent. “The HTC Hon­ors Col­lege and Cen­ter for In­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary Stud­ies will of­fer an aca­dem­i­cally chal­leng­ing, in­ter­dis­ci­plinar y ed­u­ca­tion that re­quires stu­dents to be­come ex­perts in a dis­ci­pline of their choice — their aca­demic ma­jor — while also ask­ing them to think be­yond their ma­jor in their in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary hon­ors sem­i­nars.”
