Applications sought for Mortar Board's Class of 2015

The Barbara Cook Chapter of Mortar Board is accepting nominations for the Class of 2015 until 5 p.m. Feb. 5.

As an honor society for senior students, Mortar Board relies heavily on the faculty and staff of Purdue for help identifying outstanding students for this opportunity. Third-year (junior classification) men and women are eligible for membership. Requirements include superior scholarship (GPA of 3.2 or higher), leadership and dedication to serving the University or community.

Although there is no limit on the number of nominations that an individual can make, faculty and staff are reminded that Mortar Board is an honor society for 40 of the University's top students. In addition, nominators are asked to take into consideration Mortar Board's continued goal of reflecting the diversity of the Purdue campus and community in its membership.

The chapter also reminds nominators of the confidential nature of the selection process and asks that nominations be kept private.

Nominations should include comments on the quality of each nominee's leadership, scholarship and service, along with a list of activities, if available. Information concerning character, initiative and scholastic achievements is helpful.

The online form for nomination is at https://boilerlink.purdue.edu/form/start/17451.
