Senior Honors Portfolio
The Senior Portfolio is a graded one-credit-hour project which involves the collection of 8-10 artifacts from a student's undergraduate career accompanied by a reflective paper that explains how each artifact contributed to the student's intellectual and/or personal growth.
The Senior Portfolio provides an opportunity for students to review their work during their undergraduate experience and to select 8 -10 artifacts that provide the best evidence of meeting the following Honors College goals: academic excellence, campus and community service, global awareness, appreciation of cultural events, and personal growth.
Elements of the Portfolio
The Honors Senior Portfolio is a reflective portfolio, not a professional portfolio. The portfolio consists of two parts:
- Documentation of carefully selected milestones over the last four years in the form of 8-10 artifacts (written, visual, taped, etc.) that relate to the Honors College goals listed above. The 8-10 artifacts should consist of both academic and non-academic work as follows:
- A reflective 10-15 page paper which integrates this collection of artifacts with the student’s self-reflected observations of personal growth and development. The 10-15 page reflection paper, although a highly personal essay, should be a polished piece of writing.
Further details are outlined on the contract.
