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.
As a member of the Honors program, I would to like express my appreciation for the support CSI Foundation has provided for me. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to be part of this fantastic program. The financial help has given me the foundation to focus more on my educational goals. In addition, it provides me with the strength to keep going, and come closer to my dreams. I am majoring in Criminal Justice and will pursue to become an FBI Agent. I plan to graduate from CSI with an Associate's Degree in Criminal Justice then plan to transfer to a four year university.
First and foremost, the foundation scholarship has substantially reduced the financial burden on my parents. As we are going through difficult financial times as a result of the economy, and because the cost of college is expensive, even at CSI, every donation to my college education helps tremendously. Therefore, this scholarship has played a huge part in allowing me to go through my first year of college debt free.
By having the support of Foundation Scholarships, students are able to attend school and further their education without having to worry too much about the money. I personally wouldn't be able to attend college at all if I didn't have the support of scholarships. I would have to work a full time job and take out loans, causing me to worry too much about that stuff and not focusing on school. Without the options of scholarships, I would honestly question my choice in even attending college.
