114 Freshmen Are Invited To Take Honors Work [Newspaper Article] — Kent State University Summer News — 28 July 1960
114 Freshmen Are Invited To Take Honors Work A four-year honors program geared to the needs of academically superior students will be launched on the freshman level this fall at the University. Personal invitations already have been extended to 114 superior applicants to this year's freshman class to take part in the program. Initially for freshmen only, the program will be expanded annually until it includes sophomores, juniors and seniors.

The faculty study showed nearly half the institutions had four-year programs and that the trend is in this direction. University officials estimate 50 to 100 students in this year's class of more than 2,500 freshmen will enroll in the honors courses scheduled. Those qual...
