College of Criminology and Criminal Justice student Nicole Juarez was among the 59 undergraduate students to be inducted into the prestigious Garnet & Gold Scholar Society for Fall 2018.

“We are extremely proud of Nicole and the many Garnet & Gold Scholars we have over the years.” said Dr. Thomas Blomberg, Dean of the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice. “They have taken the initiative to become active participants in their campus and their communities and will no doubt continue to be active citizens for years to come.”

Established in 2010, the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society facilitates student involvement and recognizes undergraduate students who excel within and beyond the classroom in at least three of five areas: international experience, internship, leadership, research, and service.

To become an inductee of the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society, students must meet the engagement area criteria and submit a synthesis reflection project in their final semester before graduation. Participants are recognized during graduation and receive a designation on their official university transcript, both of which make the students more marketable to potential employers or graduate programs.
