"Applying to become a student editor of The NCHC Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity (UReCA) has been one of the most unique experiences of my undergraduate career. As a first-year student, I took a chance on applying for this position - and I have gained so much from the organization that I decided to return for a second year. As a passionate honors student, I am able to elevate the connection forged between the SNC Honors Program and the National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) to a new level. Not only has this relationship been positive for the SNC Honors Program, but I have had numerous irreplaceable opportunities for personal, academic, and professional development. As a UReCA editor, I am empowered to aspire to many lofty goals and challenges such as: presenting a session about and promoting the journal to students, faculty, and the publication board at the annual NCHC national conference in Atlanta and Boston; participating in a weeklong boot camp while going hiking and camping in Bryce Canyon, Utah; working closely with professors and students from other honors programs across the U.S. while gaining unique perspectives from these talented people with a wide range of backgrounds, knowledge, skills, and honors experiences; learning how to operate a journal and move submissions through the publication process; and fostering the intellectual collaboration of students from honors programs across the country! This incredible experience of leading the operations and communications of a student-led, rising national undergraduate research journal is something that very few students can claim to have achieved when they graduate college. I encourage other SNC students to contribute their special individual talents and take this chance to grow, no matter what their major is!"
