Excelsior recently became an active member of the SALUTE Honor Society. SALUTE is a veteran and military national honor society to recognize the service, academics, leadership, unity, tribute and excellence exhibited by our students.
Graduating Excelsior College students must meet the criteria to be members which includes having a 3.0 – 4.0 GPA for undergraduate degrees and a 3.5 – 4.0 GPA for graduate degrees, are being extended a formal invitation to become SALUTE members. Judy Reed, director of veteran services and outreach, shared, “Those students who opt to join SALUTE will join a prestigious group of military and veteran leaders dedicated to academic excellence and a commitment to high principles and achievement throughout their life.”
Upon acceptance of this invitation, the graduates will be presented with a military challenge coin, a membership certificate with a seal, and a purple and silver cord during an induction ceremony, which will held in July in conjunction with the College’s annual Commencement.
