All in all, 14 individual students were recognized with individual awards at this event; of those students thus recognized, 11 had an HSS major. Now here’s another statistic: HSS students make up just about one third of the total enrollment in the college. Since everyone receiving the weekly message in which this information is being announced is a student, teacher, or supporter of the humanities and social sciences, all of you have great critical thinking skills. Therefore, I will ask you to draw your own conclusions about this fact: 86% of the award winners were HSS students, but HSS students constitute only 35% of the College’s enrollment.
Who’s Who Awards
In addition, the following HSS students were among those recognized with Who’s Who Awards at Wednesday’s banquet: Devin Dimmig (History Sec Ed), Taylor Enoch (Self-Designed Major), Katrina Notarmaso (Political Science), and Regina Zick (Psychology).
Blue and Gold Awards
These two HSS students were among those recognized with Blue and Gold Awards at the banquet: Max Bernstein (Philosophy) and Tyler Liberty (English).
