The application assists you in planning your engagement activities and helps better ensure that you understand what is expected of you to meet the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society requirements.
Remember that the application is simply a plan. You do not need to have all activities completed in order to begin the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society process.
Please note that acceptance of your application does not guarantee induction into the Garnet & Gold Scholar Society. You are responsible for ensuring that you meet the criteria for each of your engagement areas.
Engagement Areas and Criteria
In order to complete your application you will need to know which of the three areas you would like to participate. Within each area, you will also need to state how you plan to fulfill the engagement criteria. Be as specific as possible, especially for activities that you have already completed. Include specific names of activities, programs and courses and the semesters experiences will be completed or have already been completed.
The Engagement Area Checklist is designed to assist in planning your application. Use this checklist to plan to complete the Garnet and Gold Scholar Society program. The questions on the checklist are the questions you will be expected to answer regarding your experiences in each of the three Engagement Areas.
Overall Program Advisors
You will need to specify your Overall Program Advisor within your application. The Overall Program Advisor will assist you in making sure you are meeting criteria and deadlines, and will ultimately be the person who reviews your final Synthesis Project. Advisors work in various departments on campus.
You have three options for choosing an Overall Program Advisor.
- You will be able to select three potential advisors from a list within the application.
- If you have no preference for an Overall Program Advisor, you may indicate this on the form. An advisor will be chosen for you.
- If you have a particular faculty or staff member with whom you already have a relationship with and who has agreed to serve as your Advisor, you may indicate this on the form. Once you select this box on the application, you must email GGSS with the name of your selected advisor.
A list of Overall Program Advisors can be found here . Please know, you may not be paired with your preferred advisor as they may already be advising their maximum number of students for GGSS. If this is the case, we will do our best to pair you with another compatible advisor.
