Honors Opportunities at DU
Extreme Academics has been helping DU students get the most out of DU's academic opportunities since Fall 2009. Its purpose is to help DU undergraduates develop skills and discover opportunities to make them competitive for prestigious graduate programs and domestic and international post-graduate fellowships. The program begins with an Opportunities Fair and includes workshops, graduate student and faculty panels, peer support and one-on-one guidance to help students identify their scholarly goals and develop ways to achieve them.
The culmination of the program is the award of funding to selected student projects.
The schedule lists the events offered, and students are welcome to attend any or all of them. Interested students will have the opportunity to work on individual projects with support from program director.
Friday March 29 from 4:00-5:30, location TBA: The Inside Scoop Part II
DU alums Michelle Dover (INTS) and Katherine Mercier (Anthropology) will talk about their experience applying to, getting into, and getting the most out of graduate school
Michelle got her Masters degree at George Washington University and will be fresh from the IAEA summit in Vienna. Katherine is in her first year of a master’s program in Anthropology at the University of Leicester in the UK, and was on hand during all the recent hubbub surrounding the disinterment of notorious King Richard III. Both women will have lots to share about life after the undergraduate degree!
