CAS SI Leader Ryder Rule Announced as a Rucks Fellow
October 1, 2018
BATON ROUGE – LSU Center for Academic Success (CAS) Supplemental Instruction (SI) leader Ryder Rule has been selected to become a Rucks Fellow. Along with nine other senior management majors in the E.J. Ourso College of Business, Rule was selected by faculty members as one of the 2018-2019 inductees into the Society of Rucks Fellows.
The Rucks Fellows Program is sponsored by a generous gift from William W. and Catherine M. Rucks. Ten students who represent the highest level of academic achievement among senior management majors are selected by faculty each year to enrich their development as future business leaders.
The students selected receive exclusive opportunities, including having the right to identify themselves as Rucks Fellows. These students are also allowed the opportunity to interact with faculty and business leaders at special events, preferential enrollment in management courses and receive recognition during graduation.
“Being a Rucks Fellows personally opens many new doors for internships and jobs that otherwise I would not have had. I hope that being a Rucks Fellow will help me advance my goal of acceptance into law school upon graduation,” Rule said.
In order to qualify for recognition as a Rucks fellow, a senior management major in any of the department’s concentrations must have a grade point average in the Top 10 of all graduating seniors in the management curriculum. These students are identified early in the fall semester, usually in September.
Rule began working with the Center for Academic Success in January 2018. He served as tutor for business courses for seven months. Rule currently acts as a Supplemental Instruction leader for Economics 2035 where he holds study sessions for fellow students in order to help them increase their academic performance.
