Student Group Awards

Where involvement begins.

Each year Student Group Services recognizes student groups on campus for excellence in a variety of areas that make campus life and the student experience truly amazing! We think all of our groups are seriously awesome and these awards are our way of letting you know it!

We're giving out 5 awards this year at the SU Awards Night 2016:
