The weather cooperated, and the Anderson Animal Shelter of South Elgin came through again! The Honors Program put on another successful Puppy Study Break last week. Thanks to Lacey Wells and her helpers for the legwork, and to JSO for the popsicles.
Some of the scenes from the event:
The Honors Program will once again bring puppies to campus from Anderson Animal Shelter in South Elgin for stress relief during exam week, with refreshments sponsored by JSO. This year the puppies will be on the lawn outside the Lindner Commons on Wednesday, May 3 from 11:00-1:00. All are welcome to bring their own dogs — the more the merrier!
We had a successful Fifth Annual Student Research Day at Judson on April 24! Organized by The Honors Program and sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, each year the event celebrates and showcases some of the best work done by Judson students during the year. Eight students presented on their work from this year, in disciplines ranging from Architecture to Film to Biochemistry to Literature to Worship Arts to Graphic Design.
The Honors Program was well represented. Graduating seniors Natalia Warren and Rachel Peterson, as well as junior Catherine Anderson, shared their work.
In “The Importance of Inquiry,” Natalia reported on designing an interactive peer-to-peer learning activity for students.
Rachel shared from her study of 1893 Columbian Exposition Women’s Building architect Sophia Hayden in “Sophia Hayden: A Story of Success.”
And Catherine read from her award-winning study of “Redefining Piety” in Homer.
Congratulations to all presenters, and many thanks to the nominating faculty!
This semester’s Lunch with a Professor will be Thursday, March 30 from 11:00-12:00 in the Reed Room.

The Honors Program was well represented at this year’s Communication Arts Conference, including three Stuart A. Ryder Scholarship winners.
Congratulations to First-Place finisher Kimmy Blake and to Second-Place finishers Catherine Anderson and Joshua LaFollette!
The Honors Program, along with the Judson Student Organization, will host another Puppy Study Break during exams. Come by the Upper Commons on Wednesday, December 7 between 11:00am-1:00pm for some K-9 stress relief and refreshments.
Pass the word — all are welcome!
