Disciples Honors Awards Competition
February 5 – 6, 2016
Your heritage as a member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is important to Barton College. More than likely, the Christian Church (DOC) contributed to your identity and the choices you have made. You now stand at the watershed of new opportunities, and your connection to the Christian Church can continue to thrive.
After you register for the Disciples Honors Competition, we will contact you with an essay prompt centering on your DOC identity. Your essay will be submitted prior to Scholars’ Weekend and used as a catalyst for conversation at the Saturday breakfast. The Disciples Honors Competition will be an opportunity to celebrate your Disciples of Christ heritage, meet other DOC students, and learn how your DOC identity is celebrated at Barton College.
If you have any questions, you may contact your admissions counselor at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 800-345-4973, or you may contact the Reverend Jamie Eubanks, chaplain, at email@example.com or at 800-345-4973 x6368.
