The Laurel Wreath Honors Society is the oldest and most distinguished organization of its kind on Austin Peay State University’s campus. This multi-disciplined honors group is made up of some of the best and brightest members of the APSU community, including top-notch students, faculty, and staff. Admission requirements generally mirror those of the Honors Program: top ten percent high school class rank, minimum composite ACT score of 26 or higher, and commendable high school record (These requirements are flexible – the most important characteristic is willingness to learn in a more challenging, creative academic environment).
Laurel Wreath Honors Society recruits successful students and provides them opportunities for personal and professional enhancement through social, academic, and community-centered events. Members are able to interact with other like-minded individuals and form networks that will last throughout college and beyond. Leadership opportunities abound within Laurel Wreath, including the top position of President. Each year, the Laurel Wreath Honors Society’s president is asked to give the address during the annual Awards Day Ceremony, sharing the stage with other distinguished faculty and students. This is always a special honor for the president and organization as a whole and shows the value the APSU community places on the Laurel Wreath Honors Society and its members.
