Seeking Nominations: 24 Zips for 2024

Graphic by Olivia Richardson.

The Buchtelite is seeking the kind of Zips we’d all like to know. These are current students who deserve the spotlight – even for achievements and qualities not traditionally recognized.

We’re talking about qualities like being the friend who always has your back and achievements like being the person who did all the work in for the group project.

We are accepting nominations for the 24 Zips of 2024 from faculty, staff and students until Sunday, April 7 at 11:59 p.m.

Students selected will be featured in the 2024 Spring print edition and online.
