The Top Scholars program began in 1995 through a collaboration between the WSU Parents Association and Friends of the Libraries to recognize the top graduating senior from each of WSU's 6 colleges. Over the years the program has grown and adapted. In addition to the 6 colleges, a graduating student from the Lake Campus is now honored. The Friends of the Libraries support this program through the Legacy Book Fund and operating expenses. Winners are selected by the Dean based on their GPA and represent the mission, vision and values of our inclusive University.
