ULM students complete honors program
Three ULM undergraduate students recently completed the University Honors Program.
During their junior and senior years, the students worked closely with advisors who helped them choose a special project.
Brittany Lynne Jarrette, mathematics, worked with David Hare on "An Exploration of the Proportions of 1's and 0's in the Binary Representation of the Prime Numbers."
Rebecca Ann Magee, mass communications, worked with Jeffrey Gibson on "Franklin Parish Heroes: World War II."
Rebecca Leigh Quattrini, history, worked with Bryan Butler on "Super Heroes and Stoics: Conceptions of Stoics in Pop Culture."
The University Honors Program provides a unique learning opportunity for students with exceptional academic abilities. Students enjoy non-traditional classes, special sections of traditional classes, and opportunities for increased interaction with faculty members and other students of similar abilities.
The program is open to students in all majors. Successful completion of all requirements and a cumulative grade point of at least 3.3 will qualify the student for graduation as a University Honors Student and the Regents Certificate of Excellence.
The program is administered by the University Honors Council, which includes the President of the Student Honors Board.
