Washburn’s Who’s Who Among American Universities and colleges
A student at the University of Alabama desired created an honors program without dues or fees that would select and recognize outstanding students for their academic accomplishments and leadership contributions. While still pursuing his studies, he created Who's Who Among Students In American Universities and Colleges, a distinguished biographical volume that honors the nation's most noteworthy students of higher learning.
Through years of serving higher education, Who's Who Among Students exists as one of the most highly regarded and long-standing honors programs in the nation, having earned the over-whelming respect of college faculties and administrations. For the students that are outstanding leaders on campus, becoming nationally recognized by the Who's Who program marks a pinnacle of scholastic and leadership achievement.
Selections to Who's Who Among Students are made each year by individual schools. Nominations are accepted from University faculty and staff, and are screened by a selection committee. In addition to the minimum requirements of 88 hours and a 3.0 GPA, our screening committee looks for outstanding service to the campus and the community.
