Northern Michigan University’s Economics Department offers one annual award: Outstanding Graduating Senior, selected by the faculty.

Outstanding Graduating Senior

Each year, the Economics Department recognizes an outstanding graduating senior, who is selected on the basis of his or her academic work, campus leadership and personal qualities.

For 2006-07, the economics faculty chose Andrew Larson of Marshfield, Wisc., as the department’s Outstanding Graduating Senior recipient. Larson graduated with a double major in economics and political science. He participated in such campus organizations as all Student Judiciary Students for Organ Donations and Mortar Board. He begins attending law school at the University of Wisconsin in fall 2007.
