Dean's Scholars, Health Science Scholars and Polymathic Scholars represent some of the most well-rounded and plain interesting students at the University of Texas. We asked three of them – seniors Mia Ramirez of Polymathic, Wyatt Reeves of Dean's, and Milan Stokes of HSS – to look back on their undergraduate years and tell us how they have changed during their time here.

CNS Honors Today

CNS Honors Today

Dear alumni and families:

Many years ago, Dean's Scholars admitted no more than 25 students per year. Today, DS and our younger honors programs in the College of Natural Sciences, Health Science Scholars and Polymathic Scholars, together admit up to 150 students annually. And yet it's never been more of an achievement to be admitted to CNS Honors.

Student Writes Biologists Should Update Views on Same-Sex Behavior in Animals

Over the years, scientists have recorded same-sex sexual behavior in more than 1,500 animal species, from snow geese to common toads. And for just as long evolutionary biologists studying these behaviors have grappled with what has come to be known as a "Darwinian paradox": How can these behaviors be so persistent when they offer no opportunity to produce offspring?
