COSSPP Students Dominate Senior Scholar Honors

Grace Montgomery, Taegan Dennis, Kimberlee McMillin and Osvaldo Rodriguez were among the 11 students with social science majors who were honored as Outstanding Senior Scholars for 2019. All four were members of the 2018 cohort of Social Science Scholars.

Each year, the university’s Honors Program recognizes graduating seniors who have distinguished themselves academically. Eleven students with at least one major in the college are among the 22 undergraduates recognized for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The students were recognized at a banquet at the Honors, Scholars and Fellows House on April 13, 2019.

To qualify for Outstanding Senior Scholar status, students must complete three exceptional academic achievements:
– Maintaining a 3.9 GPA or higher, graduating Summa Cum Laude
– Challenging themselves and enriching their education by completing the Liberal Studies Honors Program with a minimum of 18 honors points
– Earning Honors in their Major by completing an honors thesis

According to the program, achieving any of these distinctions is a noteworthy accomplishment; achieving all three is a rarity.
