Four students from The College of New Rochelle’s School of Arts & Sciences Honors Program, accompanied by Honors Program Director and Professor of History Dr. Amy Bass, will be attending the Northeast Regional Honors Council’s annual conference. This year, the conference, entitled “Migrations,” will begin on March 31, 2016, in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Arriving on Thursday evening for preliminary festivities, including the now famous “Selfie Scavenger Hunt”, students will begin their conference stint with a full day rigorously exploring Cambridge’s history and heritage as part of the annual City-as-Text program. They will also take part in numerous student mixers and open mic sessions, attend the Presidential Banquet, enjoy creative workshops and research panel presentations, and hear several speakers, including writer Michael Patrick MacDonald, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir All Souls: A memoir of Roots and Rebellion. The students will also represent the college at the annual student business meeting.
