Dean's Medalists

COSAM Dean's Medalists

The Dean's Medalists are outstanding graduating seniors in each department. Students are nominated by faculty within their department and selection is based on academic performance, character and potential. The number of medalists chosen from each department is based on student enrollment.

Each recipient receives a copy of their 8x10 photograph that hangs in the hallway in the Dean's office area for the following year, a book and a Dean's Medal on a plaque.
