Every year, the Emory Alumni Board (EAB) and the Student Alumni Board (SAB) strive to recognize the success of outstanding students and identify emerging alumni leaders from the current senior class. These students are named the 100 Senior Honorary and they are chosen from the graduating classes of the undergraduate schools: Oxford College, Emory College, Goizueta Business School, and the School of Nursing.
The best candidates for this award:
- are deeply committed to their interests, no matter the discipline.
- have made outstanding contributions on the Emory campus through academics, athletics, leadership, volunteerism, or even personal relationships.
- love Emory, intend to stay connected, and accept the challenge to stay committed.
Because the 100 have demonstrated outstanding achievements on campus, we charge each one with acting as alumni leaders after graduation. Members of the past classes of 100 Senior Honorary mentor upcoming students, serve as admission representatives, are involved in their chapters, join host committees during reunions and serve on leadership boards.
Nominations are open for one month starting in early October. Nominations are accepted from students, alumni, faculty, and staff, but self-nominations are not accepted.
A committee comprised of representatives from academic departments, campus life, the OAE, Student Alumni Board, and past members of the 100 Senior Honorary classes, come together to review the applications down to the most outstanding 100 senior students.
The honorees are announced in mid-December. Over the following months, the new class of 100 Senior Honorary is invited to special events, introducing them to alumni, resources, and tools that will help equip them as alumni ambassadors.
