Transcript Honors College students already have a lot on their plates with the added courses they take, but many choose to become involved with the University of Houston campus. Senior business major and Honors College member Natalie Nerritt chose to do so by becoming the first African-American women to serve as president of the Students* Association. "I do hope that I helped the students — my dedication was for the students and I hope I served them well**, Nerritt said of her tenure, which ended in April 1998. Originally from Dallas, Merritt said that she decided to come to UH because of the personalized attention and school setting. She remembers coming to the university to meet with the dean and he already knew her by name. "I was not Just another number, but a person with a name,** Merritt recalled. Merritt will graduate in Fall 1999 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and said she then plans to work for three months before starting law school.

Other organizations that Merritt has been active in include the Student Governing Board, Honors Advocate, African-American Honor Student Association and the University of Houston Student Foundation.

"I love meeting people in and around Houston.** 41 People
