The Houpt Prize was established in 1936 by Wilbur Houpt in honor
of his son, George Knight Houpt. It has
been awarded every year since then to the student who has
demonstrated excellence and proficiency in the work of
the English Department. Criteria include overall
QPA, English GPA, recommendations from faculty, and a piece
of written work submitted by the student.
This year's winner is Elizabeth Teebagy.
Student award winners will be recognized at Department Commencement on Friday, May 16, from 3:00-5:00 in 120 Clemens.
