Howling Success

Our 36,000+ students do extraordinary things every day, excelling in the classroom while participating in extracurricular activities.

They make a difference in the community and shape themselves into productive citizens. The Division of Academic and Student Affairs’ Howling Success initiative aims to recognize our truly exceptional and well-rounded undergraduate and graduate students who are showing how they Think and Do.

Students who are recognized for their Howling Success will be given a platform to tell their story and guide future students. The Division of Academic and Student Affairs will howl their success through a series of public-facing promotional content, such as digital articles, videos and billboards around campus. They will also receive a special pennant they can proudly display at home.
