What students have said of their experience as an Honors Scholar and how that experience impacted their subsequent academic pursuits.
"I am now a bona fide graduate from Wittenberg University, and I even have the fancy slip of paper to prove it. Commencement season is generally the time to thank those that helped us get to where we are, and I feel that this is certainly appropriate in this case. I want to thank you for your selfless commitment to your students, for inspiring those around you, and, perhaps most important of all, for making things seem possible. As you know, I have taken a rather circuitous route from Sinclair to the B.A., but everything has turned out for the best. In October, I will be attending graduate school at the University of Cambridge on a full scholarship, and I do not think it could have happened without your help. Thank you so much, and I wish you all the best."

"Participating in the Sinclair Honors Program allowed me to take interesting and challenging courses with fellow students in the program. I particularly enjoyed taking Greek Art and Poetry (LIT 297) which was taught in an innovative and entertaining style - a class that I probably wouldn’t have taken if I wasn’t in the program. When I applied to graduate schools this winter, I indicated that I had participated in the honors program at Sinclair and was accepted into the top graduate schools in the country for computer science. This fall, I will attend Carnegie Mellon University with a scholarship for full tuition and a monthly stipend.
