Honors student, Jordan Dawkins, is a current honors student majoring in Accountancy-Finance. Jordan is an active member of the honors community and has presented posters at the MEHA and National Society of Minorities in Honors Conferences.

“One of the greatest experiences I have had being in the Honors Program is creating an Honors Contract for my introductory Statistics class. My project was to conduct a statistical study where I observed the study habits of Honors and non-honors students. Completing this project allowed me to gain experience working with Excel, a program I will use often in the fields of accounting and finance.

By presenting my research at the Mid-East Honors Association Conference, I had the opportunity to improve my public speaking skills. The skills I gained from doing an Honors Contract directly relate to my field of study, and putting their experience on my resume that helped me be a competitive candidate when applying for internships. I am grateful for the experience the Honors Program has offered me!”
