Elizabeth Ho named Office of Multicultural Studies Student Affairs Student of the Month
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Each month, the University of Wisconsin-Platteville’s Office of Multicultural Student Affairs selects a student of the month. The October student of the month is Elizabeth Ho, a junior at UW-Platteville, majoring in psychology and originally from Appleton, Wis.
The recipient of this award is a student who has been nominated and has demonstrated exceptional academic excellence. The recipient must also show outstanding leadership and involvement on campus and in the community. The student receives a certificate, a lunch with the chancellor and a faculty person of his or her choice, a polo shirt and is highlighted on a student of the month bulletin board.
Ho chose to attend UW-Platteville because of the small class sizes. “I like that I know my professors and that I can learn from them at a close proximity,” said Ho. “I am grateful for their wisdom and support and have learned a lot from their experiences.”
She is also active on campus. Ho recently co-created a new leadership group on campus geared towards encouraging, motivating and inspiring students. The group works to build and refine students’ leadership and communication skills to give them a chance to network with students from different majors and diverse backgrounds.
Dr. Elizabeth Gates, chair of the psychology department, nominated Ho for this award.
