Honors 2014: Mike Green and Nick Schmidt
Two students completed honors projects in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science during the academic year 2013–14. An Honors project is a year-long endeavour culminating in a long Honors thesis and an oral examination by a committee of three examiners.
Michael Green '14 did Honors in Mathematics, working with Professor Yan Hao. His honors project was titled "A Mathematical Model of College Friendships". Here is Mike's description of the project: "We are creating a computer model to study the social interactions between college students. In this model, we will use the exchange of available social hours between friends to study the interactions between friends. From this study we will look to find how well college friendships help students to distress, how long college friendships typically last, and the optimum number of friends to have."
Nicholas Schmidt '14 worked with Professor John Vaughn on an Honors in Computer Science. His project, "i3: An Environmental Sensor Base Station," is described as "My honors project is in two parts. One is creating a weather base station that collects weather and sensor data. The second is a mobile application that shows the collected data to the user. The base station is cube-shaped and the mobile platform will be iOS."

Finalist for "The Pitch"
John Darby is a double major in computer science and architecture and is a member of the HWS Sailing team. His idea for the pitch arose partly from an independent study that he did in web site programming. John will attend graduate school next year in the architecture program at the University of Pennsylvania.
The Stu Lieblein '90 Pitch was held for the third time this year. It was established to promote entrepreneurial leadership and is organized by the Centennial Center for Leadership of Hobart and William Smith Colleges.

Gionet Receives Fulbright Scholarship
The Fulbright Program was established by the U.S. Congress in 1946. The purpose of the Fulbright Program worldwide is "to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and the people of other countries by means of educational and cultural exchange." The U.S. State Department's Bureau of Educational & Cultural Affairs (ECA) is the principal administrator of the Fulbright Program. Bi-national commissions, composed equally of U.S. and partner-country citizens, coordinate Fulbright Programs in fifty-one of the 140 participating countries.
