The new honors program at the Fresno State Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology will begin this week with 15 students.
In the spring semester, the students will take three honors seminars and develop an honors project with a faculty mentor.
During their senior year, they will participate in an additional three spring-semester honors colloquiums and present their completed project to students, faculty and the campus community.
Honors students will receive incentives such as priority registration, extended borrowing time for library materials and special recognition at commencement.
The Jordan Honors Council selected the honors students from a group of applicants.
