Three Penn State Brandywine students have been accepted to one of the University's most esteemed academic programs: the Schreyer Honors Program.

Junior Jonathan Hartline, information sciences and technology, of Parkside; sophomore John Formento, business, of Oaks; and junior Christopher Collins, American studies, of Philadelphia, join five other students on the Brandywine campus who are also part of this prestigious University-wide group.

The Schreyer Honors Program offers a comprehensive set of courses for students of exceptional ability in all majors. Each year, the Schreyer Honors College offers more than 220 honors courses, most often comprised of 25 students or fewer and taught by selected members of the faculty. Scholars can satisfy honors credit requirements through independent research, upper-level or graduate courses, and "honors options" for regular courses. Admission to the Schreyer Honors College is through application only.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the Schreyer Honors College during their first two years at the Brandywine campus before transferring to the University Park campus to complete a degree, if necessary. Students may also remain at the Brandywine campus and finish one of the campus majors as a Schreyer Scholar. The honors courses at the campus are smaller in size and open only to students in the Schreyer or Jane E. Cooper programs.

In addition to the three current Brandywine students admitted to the program, three students who will attend University Park this fall after two years at the Brandywine campus were also accepted: Jackie Glace, education, of Springfield; Dan Sprik, actuarial science, of Media; and Paola Pedraza-Rivera, liberal arts, of Media.
