With Honors

Honors Week brought out the best in student research presentations and also featured musical and theatrical performances this year. The week concluded on March 21 with the Honors Convocation, with Chris Hahn ’99 delivering the address.

Students studying majors from across the spectrum gave presentations, FreshBaked Theater performed “Goodbye, Marianne,” and a faculty jazz concert and a faculty recital were featured. 

Student presentations included topics from engineering, political science, informatics, nursing, biology, psychology, business, sociology, education, and more.

“It's just remarkable what our students are doing,” Widener President Dr. James T. Harris III said. “It is clear both from the students and from the faculty that they invested a great deal of time in these efforts.”

Hahn, an entrepreneur who earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science, shared stories from his personal and professional life at the convocation. He said that serving as a tutor at Widener had a big impact on how he approaches his work today.

“I think spending a lot of time teaching other people how to learn and how to do better in the subject areas that I was really strong in was a really valuable thing, because I have to keep doing that all the time,” Hahn said.

Hahn founded the software company Appature Inc. in 2007, and it was sold in 2007 in a deal worth more than $100 million.
