The purpose of the Alumni Awards is to recorgnize alumni who have enhanced the reputation of the college by distinguishing themselves with outstanding professional achievements, personal achievements or those who have loyally dedicated their time and service to their alma mater.

We're proud of what our alumni do around the world. You lead in your communities. You create new ways to serve and meet needs. You take what you learned as a student and use it to make things better in your work, where you live and for the people closest to you. Every year we highlight some of the amazing things you or your classmates have done and honor them during the Alumni Awards Luncheon.
