Graduate Schools Attended

  • “Thanks to the education I received at the Honors College, I went on to earn master’s degrees from both Emory University and Oxford University, and I started a Ph.D. program at Stanford University last fall. My college education has allowed me to be competitive and successful in arenas dominated by students from Ivy League institutions, and I have never once felt my undergraduate foundations to be any less than theirs. Studying at IUP also granted me an educational experience outside of an ‘ivory tower’ atmosphere, which enabled me to develop a more well-rounded worldview. This, combined with a sense of civic duty instilled by the Honors College social service requirements, motivated me to take two years away from pursuing my own goals to give back to my community by taking a job working with the poor.” —Tim DeBold (Class of 2003)
