CSUCI to Honor Top Graduating Seniors

Graduating seniors nominated for honors by the CSU Channel Islands (CSUCI) faculty will be recognized and given awards at the 2017 Honors Convocation 6:30-8 p.m Saturday, May 13, at the John Spoor Broome Library Plaza.

The ceremony is open to all students earning honors and graduating fall 2016 through summer 2017. These students from the Class of 2017 have the distinction of being recognized at President Erika Beck’s first Honors Convocation ceremony at CSUCI.

Students being honored have completed a minimum of 30 units at CSUCI for a letter grade and earned a grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or above in all CSUCI and transfer coursework.

Graduating seniors may receive honors at one of the following levels: Cum Laude for GPAs of 3.50-3.74; Magna Cum Laude for GPAs of 3.75-3.89; and Summa Cum Laude for GPAs of 3.90-4.0.

Graduating President’s Scholars also will be recognized at the ceremony. The CSUCI President’s Scholars Program provides outstanding incoming students with a scholarship that is renewable for four years. It includes full resident fees, a textbook allowance and use of a laptop computer.

CSUCI will also recognize high-achieving students in each major with Program Honors. Students with outstanding achievements in the areas of community engagement and integrative, multicultural and international perspectives will receive Mission Center Awards.

Graduating students who belong to the nation’s premier honor society, the Mortar Board Four Pillars Chapter, will be honored as well. The motto for the Four Pillars Chapter is: "Strength in diversity, service to community."

A coffee and dessert reception will be held in the plaza following the ceremony.

Students and guests may park in any “A” lot. Parking permits are not required during the event and citations will not be issued.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
