‘An Opportuni-Tea’ fundraiser for Idaho State University Honors Program set April 16

Posted April 13, 2011

"An Opportuni-Tea" for 2011, a fundraiser to build on for the Idaho State University Honors Program Endowment, is scheduled for Saturday, April 16, from noon to 2 p.m. in the Barbara J. Marshall Rotunda in the ISU L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Local businesses and individuals pre-purchased reserved tables for the event. "An Opportuni-Tea" will feature brief presentations from representatives of the University Honors Program, performances by current University Honors students, a silent auction, raffle items, and a delicious four-course afternoon tea complete with savories and scones.

Last May "An Opportuni-Tea" was launched, and it was a great success. 

The purpose for this event is to build on the endowment fund for the ISU University Honors Program. This endowment provides additional programming, research, seminars, and faculty interaction for ISU honors students.

The ISU Honors Program is an elite academic program for students who aspire to a more engaging and enriching collegiate experience. The program synthesizes the idea of a structured learning community with an interdisciplinary curriculum. Each class is fashioned into small cohorts and led by dedicated and passionate professors who devote themselves to the development of their students. 

Graduates of the program receive Idaho's only honors degree, either the Honors Bachelor of Arts, the Honors Bachelor of Science, the Honors Bachelor of Business Administration or the Honors Bachelor of Fine Arts.
