The Rucks Fellows

Thanks to a generous gift from William W. and Catherine M. Rucks, ten students are recognized each year as Rucks Fellows. Selected by the faculty, the Rucks Fellows represent the highest level of academic achievement among senior management majors. To enrich their development as future business leaders, these students receive opportunities not available to others, including the chance to interact with faculty and business leaders at special events, preferential enrollment in management courses, recognition during graduation, and the right to identify themselves as Rucks Fellows.

To qualify for recognition as a Rucks Fellow, a senior management major in any of the department’s concentrations—management, entrepreneurship, or human resources—must have a grade point average in the Top 10 of all graduating seniors in the management curriculum. These students are identified early in fall semesters, usually in September.
