Kourosh Ghamary

Environmental Science Major


One of Ghamary’s favorite memories was the freshman honors retreat on Thompson Island. “We played volleyball, had a bonfire and played a late-night game of manhunt. It was fun, and it was a really good opportunity to bond,” he says. To Ghamary, however, the most critical benefit of the honors program is preferential class registration. “As a Science major, this has been extremely important to me,” he explains. “The lower-level biology and chemistry courses are very hard to get into. Because I was able to register first, I had no problem getting in.”
