 University Honors Celebrates Fall 2020 Citation Recipients


University Honors staff, students, and families gathered together virtually on December 4, 2020 to celebrate the 172 students who earned their Honors citations in Fall 2020.

In addition to each citation recipient, two UH students, Emily H. Berry Paolo and Alexander Lami, were recognized as recipients of the Moringo Family Scholarship.

Also recognized during the ceremony was UH’s recipient of the Fall 2020 Portz Award, Andrea Orpia. Andrea has made critical contributions to University Honors as we transitioned into the new curriculum. Serving on the Transition Council, Andrea was a forthright advocate for preserving what was best about University Honors, including student leadership in our first-year seminar. Formerly an HONR 100 Section Leader, Andrea is now one of our Peer Academic Leaders shaping Gateway Seminar and shepherding first-year students into the new program.

At the outset of the ceremony, Dr. Stephan Blatti (Director, University Honors) congratulated citation recipients and shared some words of wisdom for our newest UH alumni (“UH-lums”). He encouraged students to remain involved in UH and to continue to cultivate their curiosity:

“The work doesn’t stop because the thesis was submitted or the citation is now in hand, because the values embodied in that work can never be fully achieved. Curiosity will always prompt another line of inquiry. New adventures will always await. Novel perspectives will proliferate and flourish.

“So think of your Honors citation as a milestone on a longer journey and our celebration here today as recognition that you’re well on your way: headed in the right direction ... There’s much important work to do, and being alumni of UH (“UH-lum”s), you increasingly embody the traits and values that will serve you well in that future work.”
