Twenty University of the Ozarks students have been recognized by Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and College for the 2014-15 academic year.
The students were recognized for their grade-point average, merit, leadership and community service.
According to the Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges’ website, "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. Because curricular and extracurricular programs at schools vary greatly, each college is assigned a quota of nominees. This quota is carefully calculated to ensure a well-rounded representation of the student body."
