Who's Who Among College Students

Selections to Who's Who Among Students are made each fall by individual schools. Campus nominating committees, created to nominate the upper-classmen and graduate students eligible for the program, are composed of representatives from the faculty, administration and student body.

This procedure of nomination succeeds in highlighting the individual and diverse service to community and school. These are the young adults who enhance the positive image of American youth through their contributions to community and school. Because curricular and extracurricular programs at schools vary greatly, each college is assigned a quota of nominees. This quota is carefully calculated to ensure a well-rounded representation of the student body. All nominations must be endorsed by a college's faculty or administration.

It should always be remembered that college students are the reservoir from which our nation draws its leadership strength. This feeling about American students is the guiding principle behind the Who's Who Among Students program and our efforts to proudly continue to aid campuses in honoring students who demonstrate consistent excellence. In 2005 UTSA decided to begin recognizing students who are freshmen and sophomores through Who's Who at UTSA. This allows those students to be recognized and encourage them to continue their hard work in order to be named to Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities once they become juniors and seniors.
