At ECSU, eligible students must have a minimum grade point average of 3. 5 and be a junior, senior or graduate student. They are evaluated on participation and leadership in academic and extra-curricular activities, community service projects and potential for future achievement. Selections to Who’s Who Among Students are made each fall by individual schools. Campus nominating committees, created to nominate the upper-classmen and graduate students eligible for the program, are composed of representatives from the faculty, administration and student body. This procedure of nomination succeeds in highlighting the individual and diverse service to community and school. These are the students who enhance the positive image of the American students through their contributions to community and school.
