    I was a member of the "Amirim" honors program, accepting a small number of outstanding students from all academic disciplines. The program focused mostly on the arts and social sciences, so it wasn't very "science-y", but it did teach me how to write clearly and academically. Oh, and we got to read The Tempest!
