From Professor Ziegler, Executive Director - Binghamton University Scholars Program
I am honored to serve as Executive Director of the Binghamton University Scholars Program and all of us associated with the Program want to make your time at Binghamton University challenging, rewarding and enjoyable. I am especially proud that our Scholars Program is one of opportunity rather than endless requirements. I know you have what it takes to fulfill your dreams and I want to be sure to provide you with every opportunity to get there. There is only one path to achieving the distinguished designation of Binghamton Scholars Honors or All-University Honors upon graduation and that path is through the Binghamton University Scholars Program. The Scholars Program is focused on providing a comprehensive and cohesive experience in each of your undergraduate years and we have a great plan to connect you with fellow Scholars and the best minds at Binghamton University.
The Scholars experience begins with living and learning in the Scholars Learning Community in the Newing College residential community where Scholars get a chance to live among other Scholars and form lasting friendships. The first Scholars classroom experience begins with SCHL127, Thinking Like Leonardo DaVinci, a course designed to help Scholars get off to a great start and learn how to think like some of the best minds ever to grace the planet. In the second semester, Scholars then move on to their first (of two) SCHL280 courses which are Scholars-only courses taught by the best and brightest at Binghamton University.
In your second year, you will participate in a leadership and service project and in your third year an experiential learning experience culminating in a Scholars Poster Event where all Scholars share their experiences. In your fourth year, you will complete a capstone experience to show the world you are ready to take it on.
Throughout all four years, we will be offering professional events and opportunities, and social events that help make us a community of Scholars. The Binghamton University Scholars Program Student Handbook explains all the opportunities and requirements of the Scholars Program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
Best wishes for a great scholarly experience at Binghamton University.Sincerely,Professor Ziegler Professor William ZieglerExecutive Director—Binghamton University Scholars ProgramExecutive Director - President's ScholarsAssociate Professor—T.J.
