Top Hawks — ULM honors incoming freshmen with outstanding academics

Published September 11, 2018

The University of Louisiana Monroe Office of Admissions and Scholarships will host an ice cream social for select freshmen students at 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 13 in honor of their outstanding academic achievements. These scholars are known as “Top Hawks.” The event will be in the ULM Conference Center on the seventh floor of the library.

Incoming freshman — with an American College Testing (ACT) score of 32 or higher and a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or higher — will be honored with a special ceremony which will include ice cream and ULM-themed gift packages, each containing a special gift —an Apple iPad and ULM iPad case.

Students who had a high school grade point average (GPA) of 3.75 or higher with an ACT score of 32 or higher will be awarded a $4,500 stipend for a study abroad experience.

 The iPads were purchased by the ULM Foundation through private donations and awarded to 26 students.
