The Honors Fall 2016 Welcome was an amazing start to a new tradition. It began with a discussion focused on Dr. Temple Grandin’s “Thinking in Pictures.” Dr. Grandin presented a lecture for the incoming Freshmen class. We ended the Honors Welcome with the students volunteering on Thursday morning in different community services projects in the Northern Colorado area. Below is Dr. Grandin’s lecture, “Helping Different Kinds of Minds to Solve Problems and Have Good Careers.”
