Ten Freed-Hardeman University Honors College students returning to campus Monday after spending the previous four days on a cultural trip to New Orleans. Neil Segars, FHU English instructor, accompanied the students.
During the trip, the students participated in numerous cultural events, including visits to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, St. Louis Cathedral, the 1850s House and the National WWII Museum. They also took time to explore the French Quarter and the French Market and to eat beignets at Café du Monde in Jackson Square.
Honors College cultural trips are sponsored by the John and Davida Hollingsworth Honors College Travel Endowment Fund. The fund is intended to benefit students and faculty associated with the FHU Honors College. The College has a tradition of funding travel and to cultural sites and academic conferences. The trip was also sponsored in part by other unnamed donors.
Activities of the Honors College are planned to transcend the boundaries separating the disciplines of academic programs in the other colleges of the University. The Honors Colleges offers talented, motivated students educational opportunities designed to enrich the university experience and to advance progress toward personal, academic and career goals. Honors Freshman are selected by application for membership. In addition, university students who have completed at least one full-time semester of coursework at FHU with a minimum 3.5 cumulative GPA and transfer students from other college honors programs with at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA may also join the program.
