Submitting Sophomore Recommendations

To the Faculty Recommender: The Honors College appreciates your willingness to write a letter of recommendation for a student applying for sophomore admission to the Honors College.

There are many talented students applying for admission to the Honors College, so your letter is important in helping us to gain a better understanding of the strengths and abilities of the student you recommend. The more detailed and specific information you can give about the student's personal qualities, talents, maturity, and intellectual commitment, the better. Indeed, if you could identify how the student ranks among other students you teach (in top 2%, 5%, 10% or 25% in reasoning ability, writing ability, overall academic ability, maturity, and intellectual curiosity), that would be very helpful.

Recommendation letters are due via email attachment to by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, April 11th. Please name the files in the following format: Student Last Name_Student First Initial_rec.doc (Smith_K_rec.doc).
