Each academic year, the names of students ranking in the top three percent of their graduating class are inscribed on a Bronze Tablet. These tablets are on display in the first floor north-south hallway of the Main Library.  Leaflets about the tablets are available near the north and south ends of the hallway.

A detailed description of this award is in the Student Code § 3-404 University Honors—Bronze Tablet.

The tablets may also be viewed online and prints can purchased via the Illini Union Bookstore.

Unfortunately, it's difficult to predict when the most recent tablet will be available to view, as several campus units are involved in the fabrication and installation of each one.  These units include, but are not limited to: the Office of the Registrar, Library Facilities, Mill Shop, Paint shop, and Carpenter Shop (within Campus Facilities).
