Jackie Page ’18, a Syracuse London alumna, has been named one of 12 University scholars.

Twelve seniors have been named as the 2018 Syracuse University Scholars, the highest undergraduate honor that the University bestows. Eight of the students are alumni of Syracuse Abroad programs. Congratulations to all!

University Scholars will represent the entire graduating class at the May 13 Commencement ceremony. On Wednesday, May 9, the scholars will be honored at a reception at the Chancellor’s house hosted by Chancellor Kent Syverud and Dr. Ruth Chen, at which they will receive special medallions to be worn at Commencement. The scholars will also be honored at the One University awards ceremony on Friday, April 20, at Hendricks Chapel.

The Syracuse University Scholars Selection Committee, a University-wide faculty committee, selected the 2018 scholars using criteria that included coursework and academic achievement, independent research and creative work, evidence of intellectual growth and/or innovation in their disciplinary field, a personal statement and faculty letters of recommendation.
