senior 27

This event has been canceled

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel Senior 27, this includes the application process, as well as the ceremony. We apologize for this cancellation, but we have to do what’s best for the community as a whole.


The Senior 27 is an annual honorary recognition ceremony for the best and brightest graduating seniors who have made a significant impact during their time at the University of Houston. It recognizes the hard work, dedication and energy of UH’s most highly acclaimed and involved students during their time at the University.

These students have made significant contributions during their time at UH to showcase and grow the university’s profile among its students and in the community. Awardees include students from many of the top colleges at UH who have not only been outstanding volunteers, but have also been outstanding students.


Please fill out the Senior 27 application by clicking the link above. Below are some attachments that will be necessary for your application.


We also ask that you complete two essays questions which are as follows:

  1. Please describe how your experiences at the University of Houston have qualified you for a recognition as a Senior 27 honoree? (limit 350 words)
  2. Following graduation, how do you plan on staying connected to your alma mater. (limit 350 words)

*Essays can be uploaded on the application page.


The last part of the application process involves providing us with a short bio. If you are selected as a Senior 27 Honoree, this short biography will be featured in future listings and programs. It may also be released to the media and posted on the Senior 27 website. This biography will not be submitted to the judges.

Selected students will be honored at a reception at UH Alumni/Athletic Center starting at 6pm . If you are selected, you will receive an email with a link to RSVP for the event.

Geordie Daniel is graduating with a B.S. in Teaching & Learning and has been a Resident Advisor for UH Student Housing and Residential Life, a Mentor for the UH UScholars program, Peer Assistant for the UH New Student Orientation program, and was recently inducted in the inaugural class of the National Residence Hall Honorary.  “He has always been a shining light in our program, and represents UH and the College of Education in the most positive manner,” said Education Advisor Alyssa Adame. “He carries himself with confidence marked by joy and laughter. I am overwhelmed with joy for Geordie as he is honored by the Senior 27 Honor Society!”

“Starting as a freshman here at UH, I had no idea what it meant to become a proud Cougar,” said Daniel. “Through my years, I found the beauty that defines our University: the diversity, the accolades, the professionalism, the leadership, the pride, and being the Powerhouse that our city and nation needs.”

Daniel plans to begin teaching math in a Houston area middle school and, in order to better provide for K-12 students, hopes to eventually complete a Masters of Education program.
