UA Campus

Welcome, Williams Honors Scholars!

It is a privilege to welcome both new and returning Honors students to campus for the 2017-18 academic year. Most of my 12 years at The University of Akron have been spent in the law school preparing students for careers in the legal profession, but I also treasure my own undergraduate experience studying Classics at Princeton University. I am honored by the opportunity to help you make your undergraduate experience some of the best years of your life. You will find that I am always accessible and available to assist you in your pursuit of excellence.
