Dinner with honors alumni

On November 9, 2008, the honors program had the privilege of welcoming former Cooper and Schreyer Honors Scholars back to the Brandywine campus (of course, the campus was the "Delaware County" campus for most of them when they were students!). The alumni sat down with current scholars for a lively dinner discussion about school, work, and the honors common read Nickel and Dimed.

"Hacking Democracy" on Election Day

Released in 2006, the documentary "Hacking Democracy" details the holes that exist in America's electronic voting system.  Scholars gathered on Election Day to view what one woman discovered when all she wanted to learn is what happens to her vote after she pushes the voting button.  Despite the inconsistencies and questions raised in this Emmy-nominated documentary about what happens to a vote, all scholars agreed that they were proud to have engaged in a historic presidential election and will continue to engage in the democratic practices allowed by the Constitution.
