Each year in May, the World Language faculty hold an end-of -the-year Honors Reception during which they give special recognition to their graduating majors and present awards to those students who have done superior work in their field.
The senior French major who has demonstrated outstanding achievement and promise in French studies is presented with the Roger and Hazel Guillaumant Award. The French section also awards book prizes to students who have demonstrated superior work in their language studies.
The senior German major who has demonstrated excellence in German studies is awarded the Walther M. Miller Memorial Prize; the outstanding junior student in German studies is awarded the Thora Moulton Prize.
Exceptional students of Spanish and of Chinese and Japanese are also recognized with book prizes at this time.
The Greek and Roman Studies section publicly recognizes those students who have been awarded scholarships in Latin and Greek.
