About the Award
The Alumni Loyalty and Service Awards are presented annually to one graduating senior and one undergraduate non-traditional student from the College of Graduate and Continuing Education. Recipients of this award are individuals who have demonstrated meritorious efforts in:
- Enhancing club activities
- Promoting good will on campus
- Establishing rapport with the community
- Exhibiting academic excellence
- Rendering exceptional service to the University
Each spring, University faculty and professional staff are asked to nominate outstanding students from the College of Arts & Sciences, the Kania School of Management and the Panuska College of Professional Studies. Those students receiving the highest number of nominations are then presented to the entire senior class for a vote.
A separate selection process has been established for the College of Graduate and Continuing Education.
Both awards are presented on Class Night during Commencement weekend.
