Schreyer Scholars submit theses, strike traditional gong

Two Schreyer Scholars rang the Schreyer gong this week, signifying the completion of their Honors Theses. Ebony Ford and Rebecca Slomowitz, both psychology majors at Penn State Brandywine, submitted their theses, which will be defended next Tuesday at the Socratic Symposium.

The thesis gong is a Schreyer tradition that dates back to 1995, when students who completed their theses would ring a bell to celebrate the occasion. Now more appropriately marked by the striking of a small gong, the submission of an Honors Thesis is the culmination of a great deal of hard work and perseverance. We congratulate Ebony and Rebecca on their significant accomplishments!
