IWU’s John Wesley Honors College introduces incoming class

Indiana Wesleyan University’s John Wesley Honors College is excited to introduce its Fall 2017 incoming class: 50 academic high achievers who rose to the top of an extremely competitive crop of applicants. These students will fulfill their general education requirements by pursuing an honors liberal arts curriculum devoted to the big questions of human existence that earns them an Honors Humanities major.

The incoming class, which has an average GPA of 4.1, hails from 10 different states: Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. As always, these students reflect a broad spectrum of academic interests, representing 32 different majors. Nursing emerged this year as the most popular major (11 students); but collectively, members of the JWHC incoming class will participate in all of the disciplinary schools serving residential undergraduates at IWU (School of Arts & Humanities, School of Social/Behavioral Science, and Business, School of Physical & Applied Science, School of Teacher Education, School of Theology & Ministry and School of Nursing). 

Once again the JWHC incoming class is a well-rounded group of student leaders that includes numerous student body presidents, captains of athletic and academic teams, worship team leaders, community service organizers and participants in short-term mission trips. Nearly one-third of the incoming honors college students will participate in intercollegiate athletics, Chorale, or instrumental music ensembles. 

The John Wesley Honors College is the oldest honors college in the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities and has developed a national reputation as both a leader in collegiate honors education and a model of excellence in Christian liberal learning. In Fall 2017, the JWHC will welcome its 20th incoming class to IWU.

The JWHC’s fall incoming class includes: Alexandria Adkins, Kaylan Anderson, Mary Anderson, Halle Austin, Noelle Beans, Megan Bernth, Gabriel Birkhimer, Payton Blair, Landry Carr, Ridgely Carter, Preston Collyer, Abigail Conrad, Mallory Cook, Presley Cornelius, Natalie Cotherman, Emily Couvion, Kaylee Daniels, Riley Daugherty, Riley Davis, Alexis Echelberry, Wynton Edwards, Elizabeth Eggleton, Zachary Faitz, Alexa Farist, Hannah Flood, Allison Gardner, Gracia Gormong, Zachary Graber, Natalia Guadron, Alison Henry, Brianne Hewitt, Isaac Houskamp, Ethan Hufnagle, Jennifer Jenkins, Hannah Knodel, Mariah Kuric, Emily McDonald, Nathaniel Miner, Meghan Robertson, Allie Sisco, Hayli Stephens, Cameron Stillson, Luke Swenson, Yeabsra Tabb, A'ishah Tandoc, Cassandra Thompson, Karla Toman, Savannah Wall, Kendra Webster and Haleah Wilson.
