Ruchatneet Printup, a film major in the College of Visual and Performing Arts’ (VPA) Department of Film and Media Arts, is one of 12 seniors who have been named 2023 Syracuse University Scholars, the highest undergraduate honor the University bestows. Printup is also a VPA Scholar, the highest undergraduate honor the college bestowed, and a Haudenosaunee Promise Scholar.
The Syracuse University Scholars Selection Committee, a Universitywide faculty committee, selected the 2023 scholars using criteria that included coursework and academic achievement, independent research and creative work, evidence of intellectual growth or innovation in their disciplinary field, a personal statement and faculty letters of recommendation.
“Syracuse University Scholars take advantage of all the educational, experiential and personal growth opportunities Syracuse has to offer and make the most of their time as students,” says Vice Chancellor and Provost Gretchen Ritter. “We are proud to recognize their achievements and grateful for their contributions to the University.”
