April 13, 2017

Farrell Brenner, Rachel Brown-Weinstock, Hasmik Djoulakian, and Soleil Young are among the 12 graduating seniors named 2017 Syracuse University Scholars, the highest undergraduate honor that the University bestows.

The four are students in the Maxwell School, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Renee Crown University Honors Program -- Brenner is a citizenship and civic engagement major, Brown-Weinstock is a triple sociology/policy studies/citizenship and civic engagement major, Djoulakian is a citizenship and civic engagement major, and Young is an anthropology major.

On Wednesday, May 10, the scholars will be honored at a reception at the Chancellor’s House hosted by Chancellor Kent Syverud and Dr. Ruth Chen, at which they will receive special medallions to be worn at Commencement. The scholars will also be honored at the One University awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 25, at Hendricks Chapel.

The Syracuse University Scholars Selection Committee, a University-wide faculty committee, selected the 2017 scholars using criteria that included coursework and academic achievement, independent research and creative work, a personal statement and faculty letters of recommendation.

Congratulations to all of the 2017 Syracuse University Scholars!
