2005 Provost's Award for Scholarship—Rachel Rosten
BS, Materials Science & Engineering
The Provost's Award for Scholarship is given to a senior who best represents student scholarship at Michigan Tech. This outstanding student is considered excellent not only by academic standards, but also for participation in research, scholarship activity, levels of intellectual curiosity, creativity, and communication skills.
Rachel is the perfect example of a scholar. Her academic performance has been excellent, as demonstrated by her 4.0 overall grade point average. This is even more impressive when one considers that she is pursuing degrees in both Materials Science & Engineering and Physics. In addition, she has attained senior status after only two years at Michigan Tech.
Rachel is also involved in other scholarly activities such as working as an undergraduate research assistant, a participant in the Research Scholars Program, a contributing writer for the Daniell Heights newsletter, a Math Learning Center Coach, and an active member in Tau Beta Pi engineering society.
