Student Recognition Awards - Activities

The Bobcat Awards and Recognition Program is held annually during the Spring semester, honoring student leaders and organizations on campus. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the division of Student Life was unable to hold a traditional award ceremony. However, we feel it is necessary to still recognize these individuals, organizations, and activities for all the hard and meaningful work they have accomplished throughout the 2019-2020 school year.
