Each year four graduating seniors are presented with the Outstanding Graduating Senior Award in recognition of academic excellence, contributions to campus and community, and exceptional achievements or personal life circumstances that have been overcome. These $1000 awards are funded by the Alumni Association, the University Foundation, and the Karen, Leon & Rita Goldstein-Saulter Memorial Fund. Each recipient will be presented at the annual Honors Convocation ceremony which this year is at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, May 20, 2016.
To be eligible, a student must have a degree award date of Fall 2015, Spring 2016 or Summer 2016.
