ALANA Spring Awards Banquet
The ALANA Spring Awards Banquet is a celebration
of the achievements of ALANA students and their allies
at the end of every academic year. There is 100% participation
with each college or school represented by a faculty
or staff member who delivers the award for that particular
academic unit. In many cases, advisors and professors who have
been mentors to students are present during the awards ceremony.
The ALANA Awards Banquet will be held on April 15th, 2016 at the Maple Silver Ballroom, Davis Center
