Nominations are sought for the George Wharton Pepper Prize, awarded annually to the senior “who most nearly represents the Lafayette ideal.”

George Wharton Pepper, a United States Senator from Pennsylvania, an attorney, and a founding member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, established this prize in 1923. In his gift, he noted that the “Lafayette Ideal is a well-rounded, educated member of the senior class who adds to a sound academic record noteworthy participation in college activities and student life which contribute to the advancement of the College on and off the campus. Academic brilliance or athletic prowess alone is not the criterion.”

Any member of the Lafayette community may nominate a senior for this award. Nominations should be forwarded to the Office of the Dean of Studies, 1 Markle Hall, by campus mail, or via e-mail at homaj.

Nominees will be evaluated by the Faculty Committee on Student Life and members of the Faculty Committee on Academic Progress.

The deadline for nominations is Friday, April 7.

Questions may be directed to The Office of the Dean of Studies, 1 Markle Hall, x5087.
