Fall 2017 Honors Convocation
St. Philip’s College celebrates student success during its Fall 2017 Honors Convocation Nov. 30 at 5 p.m in the Watson Fine Arts Center at 1801 Martin Luther King Drive in the City's Denver Heights neighborhood.
The convocation is a time the college reserves for students to verify their heard-earned success with their parents, spouses, children and other family members. Nearly 150 guests will see about 80 of the 768 students at the college who recently earned honors accolades for performance in the spring 2017 semester actually cross the stage during a ceremony and a reception, according to Susan Medina, administrative assistant in the college’s Office of the Vice President of Academic Success.
All recipients achieved honors after completing a minimum of 12 college-level credits in a semester with at least a 3.5 semester grade point average or above, and a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. They achieved the high results after embarking on journeys that tested personal and academic values in balancing the challenges of school, work, and family.
The event is the college’s fourth with participation by its early college high school students, and while the number of early college honors recipients stands at 65, the number of convocation participants in this special population stands at nine as of Nov. 28.
