Four senior medals are awarded annually by the College of Arts & Sciences: to the top graduating student in the Arts, the Humanities, the Social Sciences, and the Natural Sciences.
Sam – incidentally the son of long-time UW Chemistry chair Paul Hopkins – will be a Computer Science graduate student at Cornell University in the fall, supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship that he received in March.
Sam is the fifteenth CSE student to win the Dean’s Medal in Arts & Sciences or in Engineering. Most recently, last month Computer Engineering senior Raymond Zhang was named the recipient of the 2013 University of Washington Deans Medal in Engineering.
Congratulations to Sam, to Raymond, and to all of CSE’s superb students!
