JCCC Honors Symposium

The JCCC Honors Symposium is held each semester and gives students an opportunity to present a paper or project completed in fulfillment of honors requirements. The Symposium is intended to provide students with presentation experience in an informal, relaxed atmosphere, and allow them to share the results of their work with fellow students in the Honors Program, friends, family, and faculty.
