Elizabethtown College student Sara Bates, a biology major from Middletown, received a distinguished student award this spring 2018 semester.

Students were nominated by faculty and staff and must be full-time and in good standing with a minimum 3.2 GPA.

Nominees must demonstrate an effective integration of the four strategic signature learning attributes of an Elizabethtown College education: relationship-centered learning, international and cross-cultural perspectives, real-world learning and purposeful life work. Evidence of the integration may include learning achieved through an advising or mentoring relationship, international study or cross-cultural service project, an internship experience, a campus or community leadership role or a challenging research project.
