Who's Who to include 25 UH students for 2000

Campus Activities director Anzivino wants more applications for 01

Twenty-five UH students will be honored in the 2000 edition of Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, the annual publication listing students who have achieved scholastic and extracurricular success.

Every year, UH receives openings for the honors for up to 99 students. Kathy Anzivino, director of Campus Activities, is in charge of distributing the applications to departments across campus every year.

"They are asked to pass on forms to those they feel meet the four criteria for the honor," Anzivino said. Those criteria are scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities, community service and the students' future goals.

A student/faculty/staff committee decides who will represent UH in the publication each year.

"We do make sure that they have attributes of all four areas," Anzivino said.

Brucin Ozcan, an environmental engineering student, is one of this year's honorees.

"I'm an A-minus/B-plus student. I wasn't expecting to get anything, because there's a lot of other students who apply," Ozcan said.

She is involved in a number of student and community projects, and always has been. Knowing this would help her meet the criteria, Ozcan submitted an application for Who's Who.

"I just went ahead and did it," she said. "It took me about an hour."

Anzivino said not many students turn in applications.

"We typically don't have to eliminate too many students," she said. "A lot of students are just busy with their own lives, but it's a very simple form to fill out."

The 25 students chosen for this year's edition will be honored at the annual Campus Leaders' Reception on April 29.

For students who feel they fit the bill, the applications are available every January from Campus Activities. For more information, call (713) 743-5180.
