The Charles O. Richardson Award for Outstanding Achievement in the First-Year History Seminar was won by Hayley Roy (Fall 2017). The award is based on the vote of fellow seminar members for the most valuable player in the historical role-playing game, as well as on contributions to seminar discussions and excellence in historical research. The unique feature of the first-year seminar is playing Patriots, Loyalists & Revolution in New York City, 1775-76, created by Reacting to the Past.
