Sarah Buddelmeyer in Honors College

Sarah Buddelmeyer, a marine science major from Leesburg, is one of 700 students who have been accepted into the Coatal Carolina University HTC Honors College and Center for Interdisciplinary Studies established on Oct. 12.

The HTC Honors College and Center for Interdisciplinary Studies will feature many new initiatives and a revised curriculum. It will support students who have ties to majors and departments across campus: from honors students to interdisciplinary studies students, who build their own, innovative academic majors. In addition, the college will continue.

The board of trustees approved the establishment of an honors college at CCU in February, a year after the provost charged the CCU Honors Council with developing a proposal for a well-defined and innovative program consistent with the university’s commitment to excellence and vision for student achievement and success.
