Each year the Core Scholars Program invites anyone who has taken a Core course to reflect on the materials of the Core Curriculum by creating a Core Reflection. Students who create exceptionally creative and well executed Reflections will be honored as Core Scholars; their Core Reflections will be featured here on the Core Curriculum website.
Core Reflections analyze, question, dramatize, interpret, and (of course) reflect on the materials of the Core Curriculum in order to heighten understanding of Core topics, explore connections among Core works, and relate the Core to our contemporary world. Almost all formats and styles are welcome. Direct a film, record a song, or choreograph a dance (up to 10 minutes long). Write an essay, poem, short fiction, or graphic novel (up to 1,500 words). Paintings, drawings, and photography are also gladly accepted! Students are encouraged to push the boundaries beyond what is normally required in a Core course.

There are several benefits to becoming a Core Scholar:
