Nine COS Students Receive Prestigious Order of Pegasus


Nine students from the College of Sciences are recipients of  Order of Pegasus, the university’s most prestigious student award.

The 2019 recipients were selected from a pool of 77 nominations.  Undergraduate students are chosen for Order of Pegasus each year based on their outstanding achievement in the areas of academic achievement, university involvement, leadership and community service. Graduate students are selected based on the same merits as well as publication or research experiences. Because of the breadth of accomplishments required for this award, the Order of Pegasus is the highest student award that can be attained at the university.

The winners will be honored at a ceremony this spring on April 10.

The names and a picture of the inductees will be added to the wall showcasing past and present Order of Pegasus recipients in the Pegasus Lounge located on the second floor of the Student Union. Inductees also receive commemorative medals and scholarships from the Student Government Association.
