Outstanding GLOA Freshmen Recognized at Academic Awards Reception

On February 20, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences recognized outstanding academic achievement of freshman global affairs majors. Fifteen GLOA students were honored at the awards reception for earning a 3.25 GPA or higher in the fall semester. At the reception, they mingled with their classmates from other programs, chatted with GLOA faculty and staff about honors in the major and accelerated MA programs, and earned the exclusive opportunity to apply for academic scholarships.


These GLOA students have hit the ground running in their first year and are already making the most out of their global affairs degree programs and taking advantage of resources and opportunities at the university. After learning about faculty-student research opportunities through his GLOA 101 course in the fall, Matthew Delgado began working with Professor Niklas Hultin of the Global Affairs Program on a project about human rights issues in Sub-Saharan Africa. Another GLOA awardee, Christopher Wynn, is continuing his study of Japanese this semester and is applying to study abroad at Soka University in Japan next year.


The Global Affairs Program congratulates all of our outstanding freshman!
