UW College of Arts and Sciences Names 2015 Outstanding Graduates

April 30, 2015

The University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences has selected its outstanding graduating students for the 2014-15 academic year.

Each year, the A&S Scholarship Committee, which includes faculty members from each of the college's divisions, selects outstanding graduates from among top College of Arts and Sciences students. Selection is based upon the student’s range of interests; independent study or research and/or extracurricular activities; plus information about “life circumstances” that may have contributed to the final grade point average.

The names of the outstanding graduates have been engraved on a bronze plaque to be mounted in the lobby of the Arts and Sciences building.

Paula Lutz, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, says there is an especially diverse group of outstanding graduates this year.

“They have wide-ranging interests and knowledge, and span both traditional-age graduates and nontraditional-age graduates. Many of them have studied abroad and conducted student-originated research,” Lutz says. “They all have developed a habit of excellence in their academic pursuits and are poised to carry that excellence, along with their many and varied college experiences, into their future endeavors.”
