A: Incoming freshmen with ACT scores of 28+ and 3.5 GPA’s automatically qualify as honor students. If they do not wish to participate in the program, they simply notify the director by e-mail, who is Dr. Barbara Pemberton, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Are there honors scholarships?
A: There are grants for travel and research for which you can apply in February of each year. There are not honors scholarships for general tuition.
Q: What is Scholars Day?
A: Scholars Day is one afternoon a year in April for OBU students & student-teams to present their best research, papers, performances, and presentations to the whole campus. Often, these poster presentations and papers have been presented at national conferences off-campus, so Scholars Day enables the whole academic community to experience the award-winning work of its students. Parents and friends from off campus are most welcome!
Last year, we introduced an Honors Tiger Day on the morning of Scholars Day. Prospective incoming freshmen who qualify can get in contact with the Admission department for more information.
