The Oklahoma State University chapter of the Mortar Board honor society recently named students to its annual list of Top 20 Freshmen Men and Top 20 Freshmen Women, as well as Top 10 Freshmen Men and Women for the 2022-23 class. 

"Mortar Board is a national honor society recognizing college seniors for their exemplary scholarship, leadership and service,” said Sarah Easterly, Mortar Board Top 10 Freshmen coordinator. “The Top 20 award is based off the student's application, and the Top 10 award is based off an interview process. Mortar Board was highly impressed with the 153 applicants we had this year." 

Students selected for the honor are chosen based on scholarship, outstanding leadership and community service. Students apply in their sophomore year based on achievement during their first year in college. The Top 10 men and women were recognized Oct. 14 during the OSU-Kansas football game at Boone Pickens Stadium.
