To graduate "With Honors," students must 1) take at least 45 credit hours of honors courses, or about one third of their total academic courses; 2) engage in at least one "Beyond the Classroom" experience (study abroad, internship, research, or service learning); and 3) complete a senior thesis. Most students in fact take significantly more honors courses than required. To graduate "With Honors," students must also maintain a sliding GPA, which goes from as a freshman to at graduation. (The average GPA in the Honors College last year was above .) Students who fail to maintain the minimum GPA or who do not make satisfactory progress toward graduating "With Honors" are placed on probation and given guidance toward improving their grades.
On Saturday, January 14, twenty-nine players competed in the five-round GSSM January Open on the campus of the Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics in Hartsville. When the proverbial dust settled, three players shared the top spot with hard-earned scores: Ian Haigler of Wingate, NC, Jordan Anderson of Columbia, and GSSM senior Jeffrey Russell of York. Jeffrey had entered play as the fourteenth seed; this was his second rated tournament, Ian's 897th, and Jordan's 90th. Jordan, a GSSM alum, served as Chief TD, ably assisted by GSSM junior Brennan Ravan of Columbia.
