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.
Over the last two years, the College of Southern Idaho has not only provided me with quality education but has also played a fundamental role in shaping, strengthening, and preparing me both academically and professionally for my future academic goals. Amongst these goals is to graduate from CSI and then transfer to a university, so one day, I can hopefully achieve my career dream of being able to compete and work in the field of advertisement. With that all being said, one of the essential components that has made it possible for me to participate and take advantage of all the different aspects that CSI has to offer, is the College of Southern Idaho Scholarship Foundation.
I am a freshman majoring in Criminal Justice, trying to follow my dream of becoming an FBI agent. In high school I did not care for school, my dad passed away in my sophomore year, my mom had to take over the family business, which left me to be the 'mom'. I have two brothers, and two sisters, one of which dropped out of high school to help provide for us. All three of us girls are currently in the honors program. I made a promise to my dad, in which assured him I would graduate high school. I graduated high school and now I am a college student in which this time, I promised myself I would graduate.
My name is Aaron Dobbs, and I would like to just briefly summarize what opportunities the scholarships that I have received from the Foundation have allowed me access to. Because of my awards, I am now able to attend CSI with the goal of achieving my Associates degree with virtually no debt. This will help facilitate my success here at CSI, and undoubtedly contribute to my success elsewhere, be it a 4-year university or the workplace. My plans for additional education include the attendance of a university, although I am unsure which one at this point.
