York's Honors Program Joins Regional Organization
The York College Honors Program has long been a member of the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC), the national college honors organization. In the fall of 2008, director William Ashton and honors students Renny Eapen and Vica Mars, attended and presented at the national NCHC conference in San Antonio, TX.
Two York HP students have submitted applications to present their academic work at next year's NCHC conference in Washington, D.C.
In order to expand the opportunities of York's honors students, the Honors Program has joined the Northeast Regional Honors Council (NRHC), a regional honors organization for college honors programs in the Northeast U.S.
While the NCHC holds their conferences in the fall of the year, the NRHC holds their conferences in the spring. Also, NRHC conferences are in driving distance of NYC. This will allow us to travel to NRHC conferences with more students, especially since the next several NCHC conferences (after D.C.) are on the west coast.
Dr Ashton plans on encouraging students to submit applications to present at the 2010 NRHC meet and hopes to take a large contingent of students to that meeting.
