The Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences held its Spring Honors Banquet on Apr. 15, at the Signature Grand in Davie, recognizing Nova Southeastern University’s Undergraduate Honors Program students for their academic achievements and excellence. More than 300 people—including students, alumni, family members, friends, and NSU faculty members and administration—attended the event.
Don Rosenblum, Ph.D., dean of the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences, opened the dinner and reception ceremony by welcoming the Honors students and their guests. Ray Ferrero, Jr., chancellor of the university, also addressed those in attendance. Following dinner, Rosenblum recognized the students who served as 2010–2011 Honors Advocates: Inna Dumova, Kirstyn Hoffman, Marissa Hoffman, William Kotkin, Lauren Llorente, Genevieve Macaisa, Andrew Mikhail, and Siobhan Ming.
The evening’s events also included the award of Citations in General Honors to 31 students. These citations are granted to graduating seniors who have completed at least 15 Honors credits, have earned a minimum 3.4 GPA, and have maintained active participation in the Honors program and related events. Citations in Divisional Honors then were presented to two students for their completion of Honors theses. Students receiving this esteemed recognition were Norberto Mancera and Christie Rubio.
To conclude the ceremonies, Rosenblum awarded Distinguished Honors Scholarships to 10 students chosen by the college’s Honors faculty members. The award represents outstanding accomplishment and future potential in Honors scholarship and involvement.
