While the basketball team advanced to the Sweet 16 and the gymnastics team advanced to the national championship, several UA students were receiving national awards for their own academic achievements. Two students join list of UA Goldwater scholars: Two UA juniors were recognized as Goldwater Scholars by the Barry Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program, bringing the total number of recipients in school history to 59. Anna Stevenson of Maryland and Jacob Wall of Tennessee were this year’s winners.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
