Honors and Awards

Samples

  • G.P.A. 3.4; Dean's List five semesters
  • John Christopher Megabucks Scholarship: one of 10 students to receive the highest scholarship honor award of the College, based on academic achievement, campus leadership and community service.

Students who have been the recipients of numerous honors and awards have a tendency to put everything down on a resume. It is better to select honors and awards which present a composite picture of your strengths than to list all of your triumphs. For example, nominated to Who's Who in America may not have much of an impact, however, indicating that you were the recipient of the Faculty Scholar, an award given to the top three students in your major, will cause an employer to take notice.
