Lunch Meet-and-Greet Next Monday

lunch2The Honors Program will host a lunchtime meet-and-greet to give students a chance to meet others in the program, especially those new to Judson. We’ll also have a Q&A with program director Dr. Craig Kaplowitz as the first installment of this year’s Lunch-With-A-Professor series.

Come join us next Monday, November 14 anytime between 11:00-1:00. Grab your lunch and meet us in the Reed Room (the small meeting room at the north end of the cafeteria) — enter from the corner of the cafeteria near the windows. Feel free to come as go as your schedule allows.

Hope to see you there!


JU Honors Student is Judson’s 2015 Lincoln Academy Student Laureate

Ethan Adams, a senior in The Honors Program, was named as the 2015 Student Laureate of the Lincoln Academy of Illinois. Each fall, an outstanding senior from each of the four-year, degree-granting institutions of higher learning in Illinois is awarded the Abraham Lincoln Civic Engagement Award and becomes a Student Laureate. Ethan, a Marketing, Management and Communication Studies major, maintains a 4.0 grade point average and has achieved the Dean’s List for the past six semesters. He also launched the first-ever Judson Shark Tank entrepreneurship competition, which will continue on Thursday, Nov. 19. Congrats, Ethan!

Publish your creative work!

Here is an opportunity to have your creative work published. From the Brainchild website:


Brainchild is the premier literary and arts magazine for undergraduate honors students in the United States. Representing the Mid-East Honors Association (MEHA), Brainchild accepts the work of students in honors colleges and programs from Illinois to Pennsylvania, and from Michigan to Virginia. Though it represents MEHA, Brainchild is continuing to branch out to other areas of the United States to achieve its goal of becoming the number one undergraduate-only literary and arts magazine in the country.

Brainchild‘s chief focus is its content and design. In terms of prose, we publish fiction, creative nonfiction and essays. In terms of art, we publish both fine art and photography.
