On Tuesday, October 3, faculty, staff, friends, and family gathered to celebrate the induction of 60 students into the Honor Society of the School of General Studies at its fall 2017 Induction Ceremony in the Skyline Ballroom of Faculty House. The GS Honor Society, created in 1997 to celebrate the academic achievement of exceptional GS scholars, is open to juniors or seniors with 3.8 GPA or above who have completed at least 30 points of coursework at Columbia University.

The ceremony opened with a welcome from Dean Peter J. Awn, followed by remarks from Dean of Academic Affairs Victoria Rosner.

“Given the well-known rigor of the Columbia undergraduate education, this achievement places these students at the very top of a student body that is already among the most elite in the world of university education. These students, that is to say, are the best of the best,” Dean Rosner said.

Among those inducted are students enrolled in the School’s dual-degree programs with List College of Jewish Theological Seminary, Sciences Po in France, and the City University of Hong Kong, as well as military veterans and students from countries all around the world, including Canada, Colombia, France, China, Slovakia, Brazil, Norway, Japan, South Korea, Israel, Burundi, Iran, Thailand, Spain, and the Philippines.

The chief aim of the Honor Society is to cultivate interaction among current students committed to intellectual discovery and the faculty who enjoy teaching them. Alumni continue to participate in Society activities after graduating.
