The 2020 Class of Razorback Classics

The Arkansas Alumni Association is proud to announce the 2020 Class of Razorback Classics.

This class represents the top 10 female and top 10 male graduating seniors, commemorating the university's official mascot change in 1910. A total of 20 graduating seniors were selected from more than 600 nominations. These Razorback Classics were selected based on their academic achievement, leadership skills and co-curricular activities.

This year's class of winners includes representatives from a variety of academic disciplines. Arkansans make up the majority of the recipients with 12 students hailing from the state. Other locations represented are Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The 20 students will be recognized at the Cardinal & White Banquet on April 30 in Boyer Hall at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House. During this dinner and ceremony, each recipient and their mentor will be honored. Mentors, chosen by the honorees, are individuals who have made an impact on the students during their time at the University of Arkansas. All the Razorback Classics will be featured in the Razorback Yearbook and receive a special honor cord to wear at commencement.

Additionally, the top male senior and the top female senior will be announced at the conclusion of the banquet as the 2020 Senior Honor Citation recipients. Guests at the Cardinal & White Banquet will include university leadership, advancement staff, mentors, parents of honorees, past senior award winners and the association's National Board of Directors.
