Student Leader Recognition

Each year our campus comes together to recognize the achievements of a several outstanding individuals in the form of the Student Life & Senior Awards. These awards are presented annually to students, clubs, organizations, and advisors to recognize outstanding campus leadership, contributions, and service. The Student Life and Senior Awards are selected by two separate committees.

The Awards are announced each year at a reception held during the first reading day of the Spring Semester Final Exams period. This year's Campus Awards will be held on April 30th, 2015 in  the Grand Maple Ballroom on the 4th floor of the Davis Center. Senior Awards are announced at Commencement.
