Jordan College introduces third honors cohort

The Fresno State Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology announced its third upper division honors cohort with a 10-member junior class that hails from five departments. The selectees include Taylor Ball of Fresno; Eshan Bhardwaj of Panchkula, India; Emily Campbell of Houston; Abigail Carlson of Elk Grove; Mimi Ho of Hong Kong; Zach Orfali of Oakland; Jasmine Pena of Sacramento; Valerie Rabaino of Porterville; Jaycee Shugart of Bakersfield; and Emma Zacharias of Merced. The program provides scholarly, creative and motivated Jordan College students with advanced study and mentorship by select faculty. Students will take three honors seminar units and work with a faculty mentor to develop a research project. As seniors, they will participate in three additional spring-semester honors colloquium units and present their completed project to students, faculty and the campus community. Jordan College honor students will receive incentives such as priority registration, extended borrowing time for library materials and special recognition at commencement. Candidates, which were reviewed by the Jordan Council Honors Council, must be a Fresno State student for at least one term; have a minimum GPA of 3.5 for their last 60 units; submit a personal statement with references, writing sample and resume; and participate in a personal interview.
