Extension School recognizes outstanding grads

first_imgEach Commencement, the Harvard Extension School recognizes the notable accomplishments of its top graduates and outstanding faculty with numerous awards and prizes. Recipients may demonstrate outstanding initiative, character, and academic achievement; show dedication to the arts or public service; or, in regard to faculty, be lauded by their students for excellence in teaching.One honor, the Dean’s Prize for Outstanding Master of Liberal Arts Thesis, is awarded to a student whose graduate thesis embodies the highest level of imaginative scholarship. Through the years, A.L.M. thesis advisers from across the University (all of whom must have Harvard teaching appointments) have been singularly impressed with the work produced by their Extension School advisees: “a remarkably sophisticated, intelligent, informed, and promising piece of scholarship”; and “a wholly original, impeccably researched and argued thesis”; and, on one biotechnology student, “I expect the body of work he has produced will be a significant contribution to the field and will be published.”In addition to the Dean’s Prize for Outstanding Thesis, there are four major academic prizes — the Phelps, Crite, Langlois, and Small prizes — as well as the Bok, Aurelio, Yang, and Wood prizes. Faculty are awarded the Bonanno, Conway, Fussa, and Shattuck awards.View a list of 2011 Harvard Extension School prize and award recipients.— Linda Crosslast_img read more

To find the best places to retire, SmartAsset gathered data on three separate regional factors that affect the quality of life for retirees.First, they looked at state and local tax rates, considering two types of taxes: income and sales. they calculated effective rates based on a typical retiree earning $35,000 annually (from retirement savings, Social Security or part-time employment) and spending their disposable income on taxable goods.Next, they determined the number of doctors’ offices, recreation centers and retirement centers per thousand residents in each area.Finally, they found the number of seniors in each area as a percentage of the total population.In the final analysis, they ranked each county and city on these three factors. Then calculated an average ranking for each area, weighting the three factors equally. The areas with the lowest average ranking are the best places to retire.Madison came in 10th in the state and Munster came is as the number 1 place to live as a retiree.last_img read more
