The 2003 edition of Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges will include the names of 63 outstanding students from Fort Hays State University.
Campus nominating committees and editors of the annual directory included the names of these students based on their academic achievement, service to the community, leadership in extracurricular activities and potential for continued success.
Who's Who was first published in 1934 and has since grown to include students from more than 2,300 institutions of higher learning in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries.
