Local students accepted by CCU’s Honors College
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.”
