Students of the Month

      The University Honors Program wants to highlight students who have been doing exceptional work during their time in the program. If you know a UHP student that’s been doing exceptional work this semester and you want to get them featured, nominate them for Student of the Month! You are also permitted and encouraged to nominate your own work as well.

The guidelines are simple, submit an honors student that has been doing substantial work during either an interesting experience or setting a great example for their peers! Fill out the short form below and their name will be entered for consideration, please answer all the questions fully with appropriate reasoning. If your nomination is not chosen, please feel free to submit them again for the next month. There is no limit to how many people you can nominate, and submissions are reviewed monthly.

Submissions will be gathered and scored based on amount of content provided as well as if the student’s work is timely with when it will be announced. Selected students will then be contacted, asked to provide a picture for the website, and proofread what will be displayed on the website.
