The newest members of the 100 Senior Honorary celebrate.

100 Senior Honorary

Congratulations to the 100 Senior Honorary from the Class of 2017!

See Recipients 

Every year, the Emory Alumni Board and the Student Alumni Board work to target emerging alumni leaders, culled carefully from the current Senior Class. These students are named the 100 Senior Honorary.

These seniors are campus leaders, thought provokers, dynamic athletes, academic mentors and community influencers. They are committed to the passions and pursuits and have made significant contributions to their Emory community. And, each one is committed to making significant contributions to their alumni communities out in the world.

The 100 Senior Honorary members are chosen from the graduating classes of the undergraduate schools: Oxford College, Emory College, Goizueta Business School, and the School of Nursing.

Because the 100 have demonstrated outstanding achievements on campus, we charge each one with acting as alumni leaders after graduation. The possibilities are endless. Members of the past classes of 100 Senior Honorary mentor upcoming students, serve as admission representatives, are involved in their chapters, join host committees during reunions and serve on leadership boards. There is a place for every talent.

The 100 Senior Honorary Timeline

Nominations open in mid-October and close a month later. Nominations are accepted from students, alumni, faculty and staff. (Students may not nominate themselves.)

Then, a committee comprised of representatives from academics, campus life, the EAA, the SAB and past members of the 100 Senior Honorary classes, come together to winnow the applications down to the most outstanding 100 senior students.

The honorees are announced in mid-December. Over the following months, the new class of 100 Senior Honorary is invited to a series of leadership seminars, introduced to alumni and given the tools for success. The year culminates with a reception over Commencement Weekend.

  • They are deeply committed to their interests, no matter the discipline.
  • They have made outstanding contributions on the Emory campus through academics, athletics, leadership, volunteerism or even personal relationships.
