About the SOTY Highlight
Each year, the Bruinlife yearbook selects a small group of students who exemplify the ideals of the university. We try to highlight excellence in a variety of forms, including academics, community service or activism in school life. You are invited to apply for the Senior of the Year highlight if you believe you are someone who embodies one or more of these ideals.
A Word On the Application
The written application process is never perfect because it’s difficult to convey the intangibles of a person’s attributes on paper. Although we ask you to include a resume with this application, we want to learn as much as we can by asking some questions, too. Your activities and achievements are important, but we also want to learn about the kind of person you are.
Deadlines & Selection
DEADLINE: TBD for 2021
After reviewing the self nominations, the BruinLife staff will select finalists to feature. Subjects selected to be feature will be photographed by a BruinLife photographer and may be featured in the 2021 BruinLife Yearbook and other sources.
