Student of the Month

Each month during the academic year (September-May), the history department honors one undergraduate history major or minor as the Student of the Month. All previous winners are eligible for the department's Student of the Year award. Since the 2015-2016 academic year, the Student of the Year winner has received the Dr. Paul E. Isaac History Award, a cash prize made possible through the generosity of Mrs. Nancy C. Isaac. Dr. Isaac spent most of his career as a history professor at LU.
