Honors Programs You may choose to enhance your education — and your resume — as part of our Honors program. As an honors student, you’ll work with select faculty, sharpen your critical thinking and writing skills, engage in multidisciplinary studies and grow your scholarship, leadership and professional potential.

A Larger World Study abroad for a semester or during the summer and expand your education to include other countries, cultures and languages — global experience that top employers look for. // Australia // China // England // France // Ireland

International Business and Business Administration, Class of 2013

Stephanie was a double major and had an internship that she considers a perfect match with her career plans; she was an International Trade Associate with the U.S. Department of Commerce office in Philadelphia. This internship provided both career experience and job contacts — especially valuable in an era when networking is crucial. She will pursue a career in international trade or corporate management.

« Robert Fisher Sport Management, Class of 2010 A Sport Management graduate, Robert came to Neumann unsure of his academic abilities, but found a personalized environment in which he could thrive. In his fourth semester he made the Dean’s list and never looked back. Encouraged and supported until graduation, Robert is now working for the Institutional Advancement Department of a major university and is a happy guy.

« Christine Venuto Liberal Arts, Class of 2013

Military Science, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force ROTC Through cross-enrollment with area colleges, Neumann students may enroll in ROTC and, upon graduation, earn commissions as officers in our nation’s military. Both the Army and Air Force offer assistance programs, including full-tuition scholarships.

Christine had always been interested in broadcasting and wanted to gain experience. In addition to getting an internship at BEN-FM, one of Philadelphia’s major radio stations, Christine worked as on-air talent with her own show on Neumann Radio every Thursday evening. It’s one of the many ways Christine was involved in campus life, and one of the many ways she’s growing — as a person, and as an emerging professional in her field.

G. Stephen Williams

Alicia Anglin

Serving as the Senior Administrative Assistant to the Chief of Staff for the City of Wilmington, DE, G. Stephen Williams knows hard work pays off. He credits the work he did and the people he met while a student at Neumann.

In a perfect follow up to her education, Alicia works at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) in the toxicology lab. She participates in community service through various activities. It’s a balance — of work and service — that she learned at Neumann and will carry with her the rest of her life.

Business Administration, Class of 2009

“ The greatest opportunities students have when they attend college are the many opportunities to network with people. These same opportunities propelled me into my career in banking and subsequently into my current role in government.” — Senior Administrative Assistant to the Chief of Staff, City of Wilmington, DE

»

Biology, Class of 2010

“ At Neumann, I learned different skills that focused on leadership and working in groups. When it came to personal and career goals, I was taught to work hard, but also to be kind and passionate.” — Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP), Philadelphia, PA

THE NEXT BIG GOAL


A Neumann education is most definitely hands-on. We’ll prepare you for cutting-edge careers as well as advanced study in your field of interest. You’ll find your passion — and we’ll make that your focus.

Illuminating. Engaged, Passionate and Responsive. You’ll spend a lot of time intensely focused in class. Academic life boils down to the dynamism of the professors and the passion for which they teach their particular topic. Neumann professors are well known for their depth of knowledge on a given subject. They are also known for a few characteristics they share with their students: unbridled curiosity, unlimited energy and an open mind. Neumann professors know that the success of their students — and their success as educators — will be based on the strength of the personal connections they make with each of their students. That’s a very Neumann thing.

Making Waves. Service and Good Works Are How We Breathe. Giving back is so ingrained in our culture at Neumann that it transcends being a student activity and is part of the flow of everyday life here. We don’t measure or qualify service by the scale of any particular project. While we do national and community service missions, it’s also the small personal measures of kindness and giving for which Neumann students are so admired. They seek to have a positive effect on their world and they understand that every selfless act of kindness ripples out to touch someone who might need it. THE SAINT FRANCIS INN IS A SOUP KITCHEN UNLIKE MOST OTHERS. HERE THE HOMELESS ARE SEATED AT “TABLES FOR FOUR,” WHERE THEY ARE SERVED THEIR MEALS BY VOLUNTEERS. THE C.L.A.R.E. PROGRAM, IS DESIGNED FOR OUR STUDENTS TO GIVE A HELPING HAND TO THE STUDENTS IN AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS IN THE CHESTER AREA. STUDENTS HELP THE CHILDREN WITH HOMEWORK AND MODEL DESIRED BEHAVIOR BY TAKING PART IN SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. THE MISSION OF HEART OF CAMDEN IS TO RESTORE THE DIGNITY AND QUALITY OF LIFE OF THE WATERFRONT SOUTH COMMUNITY THROUGH PROGRAMS FOR HOUSING RESTORATION, ECONOMIC EXPANSION AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT. WE VISIT TWICE A MONTH —TYPICALLY THE FIRST AND SECOND SATURDAY.

High Stakes … and Competitive. We Embrace the Inescapable Spiritual and Ethical Dimensions That Exist Within Athletics. It’s an expression of tough love when we hit the field. We have all intentions of winning big ­— but not at any cost. The value of sport is held within the heart — and spoken through sweat, practice, more practice, teamwork and camaraderie. We have no sport without spirituality, and Neumann athletes are as intense with their compassion as they are with their competitiveness. The most important moment of the game is always the cross team handshake when it’s all over.
