Honoring the 2013 General Studies Learning Community departmental awards recipients
By Dan Rosenberg, Ph.D., Director, General Studies Learning Community
We feel that a college student is not a test score. The General Studies Learning Community is based on the idea that the qualified student must be seen as a whole person, with all of his or her gifts and abilities. General Studies Learning Community is based upon the idea that the courses at this stage can and should be interrelated. The program is based on the idea that talented freshmen may adjust to college faster when the classes are smaller and the students become comfortable with each other.
GS is based on the idea that you cannot make college simple, but neither should you throw freshmen to the sharks, and thus we have tutoring and counseling. General Studies Learning Community is based upon the idea that there is no contradiction between welcome on the one hand and high standards on the other.
The faculty, administration and guests came to the Awards Dinner not only for the food, but also because they recognize these facts and wish to pay tribute to the genuine scholarly ability and academic skills of the GS students. Their efforts have produced academic success. Therefore, we recognize them for this achievement. We are lucky to have them in our program. We salute their families and loved ones.
Congratulations to the
