(March 28, 2017) -- Almost 200 Roadrunners have been selected as Who's Who at UTSA for the 2016-2017 academic year. The annual recognition, sponsored by the UTSA Vice President for Student Affairs and coordinated by the Special Events Center, honors students who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in scholarship, leadership and service to their university and local communities.
Since 2003, UTSA has honored its outstanding students with the Who's Who at UTSA recognition. More than 600 applications were submitted this year! Many of these students go on to receive recognition by the national Who's Who Among Students in Universities and College program, which, since 1934, has honored upper-level university students from across the U.S. More than 2,300 colleges and universities participate in the program each year.
For 2016-2017, UTSA will honor 19 freshmen and 20 sophomores as Who's Who at UTSA. 150 juniors, seniors and graduate students will be recognized as both Who's Who at UTSA and Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Vice President for Student Affairs Samuel Gonzales will present the students with a special certificate at the annual awards ceremony on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
In order to be eligible to apply for the Who's Who at UTSA recognition, undergraduate students must have a minimum 2.0 cumulative G.P.A. and graduate students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative G.P.A.
UTSA is ranked among the top 400 universities in the world and among the top 100 in the nation, according to Times Higher Education.
