Five Greyhounds Accepted Into Sellinger Scholars Program


March 26, 2012

BALTIMORE - Five Loyola University Maryland student-athletes have been accepted into the Sellinger Scholars Program. Elizabeth Barranco (women's lacrosse), Colleen Folan (women's soccer), Joseph Cahalan (men's soccer), Filip Zigic (men's rowing) and Brendan McGann (men's swimming) will all be a part of the Class of 2015.

The Sellinger Scholars program is an honors program in business administration designed to prepare high achieving, highly motivated undergraduate students for roles of leadership and service in a diverse and changing world.

The program has two primary components: honors level curricular coursework taken as a cohort of scholars and participation each term in a Sellinger Scholars Experience. Required courses offer increased rigor in the form of outside reading, discussion and class presentations. Service learning is integrated throughout the curriculum.

Program participants are pre-registered for Scholars course sections, which are smaller in size and allow for greater interaction with faculty and classmates. Coursework begins in the spring of the sophomore year and must be taken in sequence.

The second component, The Sellinger Scholars Experience, offers students the opportunity to participate in leadership development, social justice exploration and professional, social and community service activities in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. This element is designed to enhance the academic experience and a student's professional development and broaden the learning environment.

To be eligible, a student must have completed 30 credits (excluding AP credits) in their freshman year, carried a cumulative GPA of 3.5 that year and be majoring in accounting or business administration. Admission is competitive and limited to no more than 25 students per class year.

Scholars must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 in order to remain in the program.
