The top freshmen and sophomores from each A&M college were recognized in October as the Gathright Phi Kappa Phi Deans’ Excellence Award recipients, part of The Association’s longstanding honors previously known as Gathright Scholar Awards. (Junior recipients were announced in the spring.)

These awards were created in collaboration with LAUNCH: Academic Excellence to help recognize and celebrate outstanding first- and second-year students whose exceptional promise makes them good candidates for future awards.

Up to two students in each classification in each college can be selected for recognition; the top student is recognized with the Gathright Dean’s Excellence Award and the second with the Dean’s Excellence Award.
