One of the many benefits of being in the Honors Program is the Study Away Scholarship. Any Honors student in good standing is eligible to apply for funding to help offset costs on Study Away, Service trips and Alternative Spring Break opportunities. Katie Coon, a Junior in the Nursing Program and Jordan Mullauer, a Senior in the Nursing Program travelled to Guatemala this past January on a Medical Service trip. Katie has shared her photos with us from her trip.
