Each semester, the Computer Science faculty vote to recognize some of our top graduating seniors. This semester’s awardees included: Hudson See, Nathan Leverence, Zachary Dunn, Jacob Hansen, Anna Fronk, Michael McLaughlin, and Mitchell Ladwig.

To identify these students, the faculty members start with copies of transcripts for the top 15% of students. They also consider performance in challenging classes and achievements in projects or undergraduate research.

After the students are selected, the department chair creates personalized certificates to recognize the achievement. Students also received a gift and were treated to a catered lunch at the LEC where they discussed their respective journeys in computing and plans for the future.
