M.S. in Commerce students, Zachary Papin and Michael Van Slyke, have received the prestigious honor of joining the Raven Society at University of Virginia. Both Michael and Zachary are members of the Class of 2019 on the Business Analytics Track.
The Raven Society was founded in 1904. It is the oldest and most prestigious honor society at the University of Virginia. Taking its name from poet Edgar Allan Poe’s iconic poem, the Raven Society recognizes academic excellence and outstanding contributions to the UVA community. As stated in the Constitution, the Raven Society aims “to bring together the best men [and women] in the various departments of the University for mutual acquaintance and for cooperation in their efforts to protect the honor and dignity of the University.” Over the years, the Raven Society has furthered its efforts by offering the Raven Fellowship and the Raven Scholar Program to support and promote superior extra-curricular projects and academic studies.
This year, two graduate students and five undergraduate students, are invited to join the Raven Society from the McIntire School of Commerce. Congratulations to our students on such great honor!
