College of Liberal Arts Dammon Dean's Scholars
Available by invitation only, the Dammon Dean's Scholars Learning Community offers a year-long experience of interacting with a small group of peer College of Liberal Arts high-ability students. Preference will be given to applicants who accept their invitation to the Honors College. Dean's Scholars share interests, classes, goals, and will share the experience of working one-on-one with a faculty member on a spring semester research project. By participating in this Learning Community, you will help create a vibrant intellectual and social environment that will support you and enrich your first-year experience through learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
