Hiram College

Caroline Christoff ’12 was named the recipient of the Eugene H. Peters Memorial Prize in Philosophy for the second year in a row.

The award is given each year to a promising philosophy student. Eugene Peters taught philosophy at Hiram College from 1962 until his untimely death in 1983. His memory is preserved through the dedication of a seminar room, Hinsdale 121, and this $1,000 award.

Christoff is a philosophy and sociology major with an ethics minor. She has presented papers at the Steven Humphrey Student Philosophy Colloquium and the Utah Valley State University Ethics Conference and competed with the Ethics Bowl team twice. Last summer, she was chosen for the Colorado Summer Seminar in Philosophy, and this summer, she will attend Cambridge University to study classical Greek philosophy and aesthetics.
