Honors Students Dominate Top 20 List

Monday, October 16, 2017

--Stillwater, OK 

Every year, the Achafoa chapter of the Mortar Board Honor Society selects 20 men and 20 women from the sophomore class who best represented the ideals of scholarship, community service, campus involvement and outstanding leadership during their first year at OSU. 

Students selected for this prestigious honor were invited to a dinner hosted by OSU President Burns Hargis. The top 40 students were further narrowed down to 20 after completing interviews. The top 10 men and women will be recognized during the Nov. 18 football game against Kansas State and also honored with a reception.

The Honors College is delighted to announce that a number of our students were selected from among their peers at OSU. Despite honors students comprising only roughly 8% of the total student population, our members represented 67.5% of the students on the top 40 list and 70% of the top 20 list. 

Congratulations to the following honors students for your remarkable achievements!
