Honors Day Welcome

Honors Day 2016

Gregory L. Fenves

Honors Day at The University of Texas at Austin commemorates the accomplishments of the university’s highest achieving students, those who have earned the designation College Scholar or Distinguished College Scholar.

The ceremony is traditional and also celebratory. It honors student achievement as well as the role that faculty play in student success. The ceremony reflects the inspiration, talent, and sustained collaborative effort that lie at the heart of undergraduate education at a great university.

I congratulate all of this year’s honorees and look forward to sharing this special moment with them. I invite the entire university community to join me in celebrating their success.
