Honors College Seniors Share Their Post-Graduate Plans

In the fall of 2006, they arrived on campus. The Honors College Class of 2010 brought different talents, passions, hopes and dreams to the University of Vermont, and during their four years they bonded, read about ethics, studied for countless tests, shared endless stories in late night study (or procrastination) sessions, they wrote theses. And the talents, hopes and dreams that they developed at UVM will carry them forward. Below is a selection of where a few graduating Honors College students are going and what they will be doing.
