Who’s Who Among Students is a respected honor program recognizing seniors who excel academically and demonstrate leadership and community service on and off campus.

“Nearly all of these 201 Who’s Who awardees began their college careers during the fall 2020 semester in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brent Marsh, assistant vice chancellor for student affairs and dean of students.

“This was a trying time for everyone, yet these students persisted and prevailed. Undaunted by the challenges presented, they sought out leadership and service opportunities while succeeding academically, and I am most proud of them.”
