CSE’s Sam Hopkins: “A Triple Threat in Math, Philosophy, and Computing”

Undergrad student and Dean's Medalist Samuel Hopkins outside DenCSE senior Sam Hopkins is the recipient of the 2013 UW Arts & Sciences Dean’s Medal for the Natural Sciences, awarded to the top graduating student in the Natural Sciences division of UW’s College of Arts & Sciences.  Sam – the son of long-time UW Chemistry chair Paul Hopkins – entered UW at age 15 through the Early Entrance Program, and will head to Ithaca in the fall as a computer science graduate student at Cornell.  Sam is the 11th CSE student since the year 2000 to receive a Dean’s Medal in Arts & Sciences or Engineering – an extraordinary record by CSE’s extraordinary students.

There’s a lovely profile of Sam in this month’s Arts & Sciences newsletter, Perspectives, here.
