2018 Senior Distinction Day Spotlights Emmanuel Students’ Achievements

More than 70 students from the Class of 2018 presented the culmination of their senior research projects to faculty, classmates and others during the annual Candidates for Distinction in the Field Presentation Day on Thursday, April 26.

This year's projects spanned a wide range of academic areas, including art therapy, mathematics, political science, biology, business and economics, education and more. These presentations represent the highest achievements for Emmanuel students, permitting only those with a 3.5 grade point average in their major course to present senior research projects on distinction day.

Distinction in the Field of Study is an honor for Emmanuel students who complete and present a significant research project. It is representative of the candidates' dedication to their field and commitment to academic excellence. It marks a proud day for the College and for the greater Emmanuel community, from students and families to faculty and staff.
