MURFREESBORO – Chowan University annually participates in the national Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges program as a way of recognizing the outstanding achievement of its students. Chowan looks for students who have excelled in the classroom and who have expanded their college experiences by being active in campus and community projects and events.

Students are first nominated by members of the faculty and staff. Using specific requirements, the nominations are then reviewed by the Honors Committee. These requirements include: scholarship ability with an overall GPA of 3.0 or better, active participation and leadership in academic and extra-curricular activities, citizenship and service to the university, and potential for future achievement.

The Honors Committee has selected 27 students for inclusion this year. The honorees, listed as follows, were presented with a certificate at the Who’s Who Recognition Ceremony on Feb. 15 in Turner Auditorium.
