Each year faculty who have been teaching at McPherson College for more than one year are invited to elect the students to Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. A faculty representative conducts the election by ballot. The recommendation of Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges is to confine the election to students who fulfill the basic requirements of a 3.0 grade point average and 80 hours completed. The following qualities should be determining factors in the choices made: scholarship ability, participation and leadership in academic and extracurricular activities, citizenship and service to the college, and potential for future achievement. Faculty may vote for as many persons as they believe to be deserving of this recognition. Those students receiving votes from 50 percent or more of the voting faculty will be elected.
