• Top 50 fame for BU student

    fake 50 dollar bill numberWhether you’re one of the top quarterbacks or one of the top basketweavers, being in the top 50 in the U.S. in anything is a pretty impressive achievement. But to be named one of the top 50 undergrads in the nation? THAT’S something to write home about.

    Junior Shane Slowey, a University Scholar from Bryan, was recently picked by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) as one of its 50 Honors Fellows for 2007. Each year, the program picks “the nation’s most talented undergraduates to participate in a yearlong program of educational enrichment.” As such, Slowey is receiving special mentoring and career guidance from the ISI. He attended a weeklong conference this summer and will participate in future seminars and discussions throughout the year.

    Sic ’em, Shane!
