Celebrating Honors Students at Lehman College

Each year, at the end of the spring semester, Lehman celebrates its honors students for the current year. These are students who are graduating with honors, awards, and prizes recognizing extraordinary academic performance. This page provides the names of the honors students who are recognized each year. Also included are the recipients of semester honors: students who are recognized for their excellent grades in the Dean's List and as Presidential Scholars. The page also lists recipients of departmental honors, the members of honors societies, and winners of special scholarships, awards and prizes.
