This semester the Honors Program Co-Directors started a new tradition on campus: The Honors Stammtisch! “Stammtisch” is German for “regulars’ table.” It’s basically a table reserved in German bars and restuartants for family, staff, and regulars to gather to socialize. On RMU’s campus, a stammtisch is an informal lunch get together with the UHP Co-Directors. Two were held this semester on September 29 and November 3. They were great successes with many students siting down to chat with the co-directors. Topics at the event ranged from thesis projects and research papers to the upcoming election. It was a great opportunity to take a break from classes and homework to have a causal conversation with Professors Harold and VanDieren as well as other honors students.
