Class of 2018 Seniors of Significance


Seventy-One Seniors Honored by the Arkansas Alumni Association

The Arkansas Alumni Association honored its fourth class of Seniors of Significance during a reception at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House on Dec. 1. Seventy-one graduating seniors, commemorating the university’s founding date of 1871, were recognized along with their faculty or staff mentor. During the reception, the Seniors of Significance received a special gold honor cord to wear during graduation.

The 71 students were selected from more than 600 nominations and represent each University of Arkansas undergraduate academic college. These exceptional seniors were selected based on academic achievement, leadership skills and substantial extracurricular campus and/or community activities.

This year celebrates the 53rd year of honoring a senior male and female undergraduate through the Senior Honor Citation program, as well as the re-established Razorback Classics program. Only students selected as Seniors of Significance have the opportunity to update their application in the 2018 spring semester to be further considered for these awards.
