Release Date: 4/23/2014

Twenty University of the Ozarks students have been recognized by Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and College for 2014.

The students were recognized for their grade-point average, merit and leadership. The Who's Who selections were announced recently by the University's Student Life Office.

According to the Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges' website, "This procedure of nomination succeeds in highlighting the individual and diverse service to community and school. These are the students who enhance the positive image of the American students through their contributions to community and school. Because curricular and extracurricular programs at schools vary greatly, each college is assigned a quota of nominees. This quota is carefully calculated to ensure a well-rounded representation of the student body."

Nominations for Who's Who were made by U of O faculty and staff.
