2022-2023 Student Cohort
We welcome our new cohort that is starting in the Honors College in the 2022-2023 academic year! This year's cohort is our largest ever, with a total of 27 students, including 8 first-year students (freshmen) and 19 new transfer or current CSU students. As is typical in the CSU Honors College, the 2022 cohort is a diverse group, with students in 17 different majors, from 5 different CSU athletics' teams, and from places as close as the neighborhoods right around Chicago State, to other neighborhoods in Chicago, to other towns throughout Illinois, to seven (7) other states in the US, and to countries in Latin America. Like many of the students at Chicago State, the 2022 Honors College Cohort includes students who are first-generation college students, students with families, students who work, and students with many commitments and responsibilities in addition to their work at Chicago State.
We will formally welcome the 2022 Cohort at our 19th Annual Honors College Induction Ceremony that will be held on September 29, 2022 in the Gwendolyn Brooks Library.
