University Scholars will represent the entire graduating class at the Sunday, May 15, Commencement ceremony. On Wednesday, May 11, the scholars will be honored at a reception at the Chancellor’s residence hosted by Chancellor Kent Syverud and Dr. Ruth Chen, at which they will receive special medallions to be worn at Commencement.
The Syracuse University Scholars Selection Committee, a Universitywide faculty committee, selected the 2016 scholars using criteria that included coursework and academic achievement, independent research and creative work, a personal statement and faculty letters of recommendation.
