Promising Language Scholar Recognition

The College is excited to provide incoming students special acknowledgement for excellence in language study.

For the French, German, Italian, Latin, and Spanish languages, “Promising Language Scholar” recognition is given to all incoming first-semester students who place into at least one 300-level language course, continue to be enrolled in it past the drop/add period, and earn the term grade of at least an A- or higher.

For Ancient Greek, Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese, “Promising Language Scholar” recognition is given to all incoming first-semester students who place into at least one 200-level language course, continue to be enrolled in it past the drop/add period, and earn at least an A- or higher.

Each academic year, the College awards these outstanding language students via a reception held at the President’s Home or Penn Hall Lyceum during the second semester.

Awardees will receive a certificate of commendation that individual language departments will issue, and they will have the right to place this recognition on their individual résumés and CVs. Furthermore, these students may list this award in the Participation and Recognition Section of the Student Center in order to validate its inclusion on their resumes and CVs.
