South Dakota School of Mines to Implement Honors Program Next Fall

Next fall, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will implement the SD Mines Honors Program, according to a news release from the school. The program will admit approximately 30 undergraduate students who will complete at least one community project during their studies.

The honors program aims to get undergraduate students more involved in their community earlier on in their academic careers. Seniors at the school have worked on a variety of projects in the community including improving the drainage system at the Black Hills Playhouse to creating software for the Dahl Arts Center.

Students applying for Fall 2017 admission will be able to apply for the new honors program. In order to graduate from the news honors program, students will be required to complete four semesters of community-based project leadership, complete four honors experiences, serve in a leadership capacity for two semesters, and complete the Mines Advantage professional development program.
