The Hall of Honor recognizes graduates from the Department of HPER who have achieved prominence in their chosen field or who have made significant contributions to ESU in the form of service to the Department of HPER.
The Hall of Honor was started in 2003. In the initial year, 15 Honorees were inducted into the Alumni Hall of Honor. Since 2004 only 5 Honorees each year have been inducted. Starting in 2012, an honorary inductee has been allowed as a non-ESU alumni.
