McDaniel College senior Courtney Rosenstiehl of Turnersville presented research at the Maryland Collegiate Honors Conference held at Harford Community College, Feb. 28-29. The theme of the conference was “Leadership in a Time of Change.”
Rosenstiehl, a political science and French major, was among the three McDaniel Honors Program students selected to present at the conference. Presentation topics were inspired by the student’s interests and concentration. She based her presentation called “Not Quite ‘The End of History’: An Examination of European Populism and its Threat to the European Union” on her senior capstone, according to Erin Watley, assistant professor of communication and cinema department and assistant director of the honors program at McDaniel.
“Courtney gave a presentation of a portion of her capstone work that was equally informative and it was engaging. She handled feedback from the audience with thoughtfulness and clarity,” Watley said.
Established in 1986, the honors program at McDaniel offers academic enrichment to students in the program who became part of a community of scholars. Admission is highly selective and is based on students’ academic records, test scores, and leadership potential.
