The mission of the CSI Honors Advisory Committee is to support the Honors Program Director in achieving the goals of the Honors Program. Representatives from multiple disciplines provide input on policies, assist the Director in securing resources and promote the Honors Program mission throughout campus.
The College Of Southern Idaho Honors Program serves the needs of highly motivated and academically accomplished students by providing a student-centered learning environment that strives to develop a student’s critical, social, and cultural awareness. The Honors Program underscores the College of Southern Idaho’s commitment to quality and excellence in matters of knowledge, creativity and leadership.
I was a junior in high school when I took a field trip to the CSI campus and fell in love with it. It was at that moment that I decided I wanted to attend the College of Southern Idaho. I started to research CSI and found that tuition would be more expensive that I anticipated. As an out of state resident, the Foundation Scholarships that I received made the difference in my ability to become a CSI student. These scholarships allowed me to attend the school that I desired to go to, rather than attending the community college located in my hometown.
Receiving a scholarship from the foundation has been a great help to me as I get through school. This year with the scholarship I was able to pay my credit card back in full for my schoolbooks and continue to get through school debit free. This last semester I have been honored to join the CSI Honors Program, which will definitely help me as I go to transfer to a four-year school in the fall. As of now I am planning to apply to Harvard, Pennsylvania University, and Brown. With my cumulative GPA of a 3.
Without the financial support provided by the CSI Foundation Scholarships, I fear that I wouldn't be attending college. While it is possible for me to self-fund my education, being able to focus on my academics, and not on earning minimum wages, has kept my grades in line with my goals. I have been a part of the CSI Honors Program, and have been enjoying it immensely.
