The 100 Senior Honorary is an award and designation presented by the Emory Alumni Association (EAA) and the Student Alumni Board (SAB). The honor is given to the 100 most outstanding seniors in the undergraduate schools. Graduates of Oxford, Emory College, Goizueta Business School, and the School of Nursing are represented in the 100 Senior Honorary.
Recipients of the 100 Senior Honorary are honored for their accomplishments during their time at Emory and are charged with the responsibility of maintaining strong ties with their classmates and Emory during their many years after graduation. The 100 Senior Honorary is selected by the following criteria: members must demonstrate a deep commitment to their beliefs, pursuits, or passions and be considered outstanding in their contribution to Emory. Those contributions can be academic, athletic, in leadership, in volunteerism, in community on and off-campus, and in personal relationships like mentoring or helping other students.
Members of the 100 Senior Honorary are considered “class agents,” and will act as alumni leaders after graduation. They will participate in t
he life of the university, serving as volunteers for the university as mentors, admissions representatives, career contacts, chapter leaders, reunion leaders, on national leadership boards, and in other volunteer capacities. They will also facilitate connections between their classmates and the university.
Nominations are accepted during November of the student’s senior year, and the induction ceremony takes place during Founder’s Week. In addition to the induction ceremony, SAB & EAA will host a series of leadership training programs with selected students during the spring. They will learn expectations of alumni volunteer leadership and can select between several projects or volunteer capacities in which they would like to be involved. Students will also be honored at a reception with their parents during Emory Commencement Weekend.
