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.
The Foundation Scholarships are helping me finish reach my goal of getting my Associates degree in Baking and Pastry Arts, as well as providing funding for my classes and books, something I greatly appreciate.
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.
