Smittcamp family honors college accepts 75 freshman for 2001-2002

The Smittcamp Family Honors College at California State University, Fresno has selected 75 high-achieving students who will receive full scholarships for the 2001-2002 year.

The freshmen, who come from throughout California and one from India, were selected from 526 applications, said Dr. Stephen Rodemeyer, Honors College director. Each receives a President’s Honors Scholarship, a $200 book allowance and full room rent for those who choose campus housing in a residence hall.

“These are really spectacular students who represent the best from throughout California,” said Rodemeyer. “We are drawing top students from a cross-section of schools — small and large, public and private.”

Success of the Honors College program, begun in 1998, prompted an increase in the number of students accepted this fall from the previous 50.

In addition to monetary assistance, Honors College students receive priority registration and other campus privileges, enroll in several specially designed honors classes which have a 25-student limit and participate in a weekly colloquium with guest speakers and discussions.

The Smittcamp Family Honors College is unique in the California State University system in that scholarship students are admitted as a group, take a series of specially designed honors courses and interact in educational and social activities.

Smittcamp Family Honors students are required to volunteer 30 hours of community service in their first year and 20 hours in subsequent years. To remain in the program, a student must enroll in at least 12 units and earn a 3.0 GPA as a freshman, 3.25 as a sophomore and 3.4 as a junior.

The Smittcamp Family Honors College began in 1998 with a $1 million gift from Earl and Muriel Smittcamp and family, a prominent agribusiness family and longtime supporters of Fresno State.

Students interested in the Smittcamp Family Honors College may attend Honors Information Days at Fresno State, Sept. 22 and Sept. 29. For more information, call 278-8160.
