As high school seniors across the country prepare to make a final decision about what college to attend, Colgate is hopeful that a select group who have demonstrated talent, creativity, intellect, and determination in the face of significant challenges will come to the Chenango Valley next year. These prospective students have been invited to join the Colgate Class of 2018 as scholars in the Office of Undergraduate Studies (OUS).
Throughout their four years on campus, OUS scholars develop a tight-knit community of some of Colgate’s most active and accomplished students. To highlight the accomplishments of these students, the OUS program has recently tasked its own scholars with telling the compelling stories of their peers.
Their efforts have taken two forms: a professional-grade monthly newsletter produced by Samantha Lee ’14, and a blog of OUS scholar profiles researched and written by Timmera Whaley ’15, Christelle Boursiquot ’15, and Salote Tenisi ’15.
“Writing these profiles has been a great opportunity to showcase the talents and skills of people in the OUS program,” Tenisi explained. Whaley added, “It’s really about highlighting the great things people are doing on campus. They have the opportunity to introduce themselves to the Colgate community.”
