Assumption College Holds 28th Annual Honors Convocation

Assumption College honored 34 students with awards for academic excellence on April 16 during the 28th Annual Honors Convocation. The ceremony was held on campus, in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit.

“Each year, Assumption College faculty take on the difficult task of choosing the most meritorious student in each of its major programs of study,” said Assumption College Academic Dean Eloise Knowlton. “To receive a Departmental Award is to be named the best among peers in the field. Among so many excellent and excelling students, it is never an easy choice for a department to make; to be named a Departmental Award honoree is a significant achievement.”
