On April 18, the Department of History and Art History held its annual award ceremony to celebrate the academic achievements of its students over the past year. Twenty-seven awards were made to students at all levels of the department – for outstanding achievement in coursework, and for best research papers and projects at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The award ceremony also featured the induction of 23 students into Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honor Society, and the announcement that two students in the department received prestigious Dean’s Challenge Fellowships from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Professor Rosemarie Zagarri opened the ceremony with a lecture on George Mason’s life, legacy, and place in historical memory.
Afterwards, the many attendees – students, their friends and families, Mason professors and staff – enjoyed the opportunity to catch up informally at the reception. A full list of the awards and awardees can be found on the department's website.
