Lorena Gaona '15 Westminster College

Lorena Gaona Greenwood ’15, Asuncion, Paraguay

Why did you join the Honors Programs?
I joined the program because it offered me an academic experience with interdisciplinary coursework. The classroom if full of different students with different majors but we can all talk about the same issue and give our own perspectives! It also offered me several opportunities to access distinguished on-campus guest speakers! It is also very challenging because the last year we have to do a research project that is gradúate school-level project and it makes me feel ready to go to graduate school afterwards.

How have you liked it so far?
I have greatly enjoyed this program and profited from its many opportunities. I have profited from in depth help for my study abroad experience as well as my senior year Thesis! It is also just fun and interesting to share a classroom with such passionate students about their subjects.

What has been your best experience with the Program?
I think my senior thesis is the best experience because it is preparing me for future graduate work.
Moreover, I have got to say the professors were one of the best things about this program. They were simply the best and guided me regarding everything and had their office doors always open for me!

How has the program influenced your decisions towards your next step after graduation?
I have always known that I wanted to pursue Masters Studies in Europe. I got in universities in Spain, France and the UK. The honors program had a big influence on my success since it made me explore and go in depth with my major (Economics) and prepared me for graduate school.

What can you say to future applicants about the program?
Join the program! It will give you endless opportunities! I know it helped me get where I am today, counting the days to start my Master’s degree in Paris!
