Lunch & Learn – Oxford and Timothy M. Smith Award Winners

Three recent participants in the Oxford Semester Abroad Programme – Danielle Gresia, Marcella Benner, and Lily Connolly – combined with the winner of the Timothy M. Smith Inspiration Through Exploration recipient, Emma Stange, to talk about their experiences. Roughly 30 Honors students were able to listen to the presentations while enjoying lunch. Each of the presenters described their experiences and also included advice on how to apply for these opportunities.

Honors Courses – Honors Academic Writing and Research

Dr. Ashley Palmer in UT’s English/Writing Department, has begun having her students in her Honors Academic Writing and Research course focus on Tampa and the Tampa Bay Hotel. She is posting all of the essays on a corresponding website: The essays cover a variety of topics related to Tampa, Florida, and the former Tampa Bay Hotel and are particularly insightful. This is a great illustration of the innovative work we encourage in the Honors Program at UT.
