Honors student shares experience with Hillcrest Reading Program
Savannah Bryson Class of 2014
n the Hillcrest Reading Program founded by Dr. John Rice of the Sociology and Criminology Department and Dr. Marty Kozloff of the Watson College of Education, trained UNCW students work one-on-one with children ages 5-7. Using the book How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, these tutors guide students through lessons with the goal of reaching a second-grade reading level. The nature of the program allows students of different proficiencies to enter the program at a point that meets their current skill level. The more advanced readers in the program often finish their lessons in the middle of the semester, at which point they move up to reading picture books and sometimes chapter books with their tutors. Tutoring sessions normally last about 45 minutes, two afternoons a week. (Continued on page 5)

Cucalorus Film Festival brings issues regarding reproductive rights to Wilmington that could make him stillborn; another was a deeply religious teenager who believed fully that her actions ith North Carolina becoming more involved in would send her to hell, but abortion was her only the national abortion debate, activist-minded choice. You couldn’t see their faces, but watching filmmakers bough their stories to Wilmington. Many them crumble tissues as they tell their stories in broken films in this year’s Cucalorus Film Festival focused on voices was powerful enough. “Trapped,” a work-in-progress documentary reproductive justice; but instead of pushing politics, directed by Dawn Porter, followed a similar model of these poignant films gave us stories of the real human the personal over the political.

An Honors Exploration of Hate Speech Honors freshman seminar students discuss the various kinds of hate speech Nikki Novak Class of 2017
Throughout the semester, the class collaborated to gain insight on hate speech as a difficult topic. Earlier tin the class, we covered free speech and hate speech, using outside writings to consider the benefits of free speech, even if that meant hate speech would ensue. At times, the material covered was hard to swallow, but this class allowed students to gain insight into a prevalent problem. I greatly enjoyed this class because it allowed open and thought-provoking discussion. When choosing my freshmen (Photo by author) Class discussion about stereotypes seminar, all of the section topics were wonderful and â€œSticks and stones may break my bones but words intriguing, but I chose Hate Speech because of its prevalence in our culture and society. This class may never hurt me.â€? addressed an issue that we, as young, beginning ost of us have all heard this rhyme at least once college students have dealt with or will deal with at , and it is generally accepted as true. How could least once in our lives. words possibly hurt someone? How can something intangible affect someone so strongly? Why is it legal, under the First Amendment, for a person to speak with such hatred toward another person? In Honors Freshman Seminar with Dr. William McCarthy, we covered these questions as well as many others. In this Honors Freshmen Seminar, we discussed the lasting effects of hateful and disrespectful words and the way society addresses these effects. Through the course of the semester, we covered hate speech with regard to groups of people, including hate speech against the disabled and the LGBTQIA community.

Learning Community (cont.) For four out of the last five years, the reading program has been hosted at the UNCW Community Campus in the Hillcrest Housing Community in downtown Wilmington. With an average of 15 students enrolled per semester, the program has helped over 100 children meet their reading goals and set them on the right track to even higher academic achievements. My tutee last fall was Zi’yon, a sweet and wellmannered an angel of a kid, was below his first-grade reading level. After a semester of working with him, he could read picture books. He loved the pictures as much as the words, especially the colorful ones. Christmas came, and I knew that his family couldn’t afford many presents. I got him a book, and wrote in it, “Dear Zi’yon. You are my favorite reader ever! Happy Holidays, love Savannah.” He looked up at me after he read it aloud, and didn’t say a word, he just nestled his head into my side and gave me a hug. He had never received a book of his own before. When we finished he gave me another hug, and I barely heard him say thank you. I got more out of this experience than he did. I don’t know if he remembers me, but I hope he still has the book and is proud of his reading skills. The benefits of Hillcrest Reading Program span far beyond academic success. Tutors are able to serve as mentors to the kids they work with, positively influencing them where outside guidance may be lacking. The program also offers a more structured
after-school pastime, keeping young kids out of trouble and preventing later involvement in potentially harmful activities. Parents of students in the program are encouraged to be more involved in their children’s educations; one second grader who could barely sound out letters was able to read an entire paragraph to his mom after only a month of tutoring. In these ways, Hillcrest Reading Program offers an ideal opportunity for UNCW students to connect to, take responsibility for, and give back to the Wilmington community that devotedly supports it.

Science and Beauty An Honors chemistry major advocates seeing the joy of the humanities Aysha Khan Class of 2016
The humanities, when combined with science, allow us to look into the ambiguity of our universe to behold its splendor. hen I explain that I am a mathematics and Dr. Paulo Almeida, a professor of chemistry at chemistry double major, people exclaim, “A UNCW, once told me that successful scientists mathematics and chemistry double major! That is so possess vast imaginations. Science is not just about hard!

I didn’t realize how close I was to the Mississippi River, and I didn’t think of Hurricane Katrina until it came up in conversation later that night when we passed the Superdome.

Lessons in Heartbreak
An Honors Student’s Directed Individual Study experience in the “Love Lab” Katie Albritton Class of 2016
Although we should not say we are “hoping some of the couples break up,” this study would not work if all of the couples remained together. The study is still in progress, so I cannot disclose any results. Working in the Love Lab has been a very enjoyable experience, and I would emphatically recommend that anyone who is looking into graduate school do a DIS at some point. It is great experience for what you will be doing in graduate school, and it’s fun!
any Honors College students are already thinking about graduate school, and there are several different ways to gain experience and beef up your resume, one of which is completing a Directed Individual Study (DIS). DIS is working with a professor in your department, be it biology, history, psychology, etc. This semester, I started my DIS with Dr. Shanhong Luo in the psychology department. A Directed Individual Study can be We began studying human undertaken by completing the necessary romantic relationships in what we paperwork with the UNCW registrar fondly refer to as the “Love Lab.” after meeting with an intended faculty In the Love Lab, we studied the various reasons why couples (Photo by author) Katie Albritton mentor to direct the course. The class can count from one to three credits and break up. In particular, we examine can function as preliminary research for a student’s dcouples who have been together for two to six Honors project (499) or simply as an exploration of a months. The study involves having participants fill student’s personal academic interest. out an initial survey, and then complete another survey a month later, rating different aspects of the relationship.
“What’s an Honors Contract?” A
re you done with your university studies but still need Honors credits? Are you eager to take upper level classes in your major? You may want to complete an Honors contract. An Honors contract is a written plan, similar to DIS paperwork, in which a professor and student agree to count an upper-level (300-400) course in the student’s major. The student must complete extra assignments to earn Honors credit. The Honors contract must be turned in to Dr. Katherine Bruce by the end of the drop/add period for that semester
So, what are the benefits? You can get ahead in your major without having to worry about fulfilling your Honors university studies, and it allows you to showcase your ability to go above and beyond a course’s typical requirements. For more information on how to complete an Honors contract, consult the online Honors handbook: uncw.edu/honors/documents/ studenthandbook.pdf
Honors RAs and Their Residents An Honors RA provides an inside glimpse at the relationships of Honors housing Cody Beck Class of 2016
ecause the UNCW Honors College requires first-year students to live in Honors housing, many meaningful relationships are formed within the Honors community. However, one element often overlooked is that of an Honors student resident assistant with his or her residents. During my freshman year in International House, I remember my RA—Honors student Nick Kempton, now an RA in the Seahawk Landing— greatly influencing my trajectory at UNCW. Due to Nick’s leadership and his example of dedication, (Photo by author) Honors House residents Sarah Sharpe, Kristina I desired to become an RA, too. Lamb, Mary Jaskowiak, Christina Salerno, Amelia Johnson, Honors House RA Christine Schulze Christine Schulze, Liza Carrasquillo, Jin-si Over, Amythest Lee, and also recalls having an Honors RA during Susan Sanders her freshman year, “I actually lived in my same pod when I was a freshman, and Erin McCarthy it might have been otherwise.
