Below is a press release from Assumption College via Merit:

WORCESTER, MA — Assumption College is honoring 80 students who have been recognized with departmental honors, special awards, and Augustine Scholarships, academic awards for those who excel in their field of study.

Marisa Butler, Class of 2020, of Wilmington, received the departmental award for organizational communication.

Each spring, an Honors Convocation is held to recognize those students who have received one of the aforementioned academic awards, which honor academic excellence, passion, and a commitment to learning. The departmental and special awards allow faculty to honor the most meritorious students in each of their primary programs of study while Augustine Scholarships are given to rising juniors and seniors whose academic achievement, leadership, character, and community service embody the Assumption mission.

“The annual Honors Convocation recognizes undergraduate students for their devotion to intellectual inquiry,” said Greg Weiner, Ph.D., provost and academic vice president. “These students embody Assumption’s mission of imparting a Catholic liberal education that emphasizes both enduring ideas and practical skills. They are an inspiration both to their peers and their faculty.”

Founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption in Worcester, Mass., Assumption College is a Catholic liberal arts institution that offers undergraduate students 33 majors and 49 minors in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies; as well as master’s and continuing education degrees and professional certificate programs-each through an educational experience that is grounded in the rich Catholic intellectual tradition. The curriculum enables students to gain a depth and breadth of knowledge that leads to professional success and personal fulfillment. Students-whether on the Worcester campus or at the College’s Rome, Italy, campus-become engaged participants in Assumption’s classic liberal arts education, exploring new ideas and making connections across disciplines. To prepare for the workforce, students learn cutting-edge theory and best practices, conduct innovative research, and develop excellent communication and critical-analysis skills. Assumption graduates are also known for their thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service to their community. For more information about Assumption College, please visit
