Students whose work is published in Distinctions are honored at a ceremony each semester attended by the President and Provost. Distinctions is an excellent entrée into publishing your work and is an asset when you transfer to a four-year college or enter the workforce.
Students are also offered the opportunity to present their work at the Northeast Regional Honors Council Conference held annually each spring, and at a local CUNY Honors Conference held the first Friday in May.
Contact Distinctions editor Prof. Robert Blaisdell (robert.Blaisdell@kbcc.cuny.edu) or visit the Honors House in M-377.
