Distinguished Alumni Awards

Following the frenzied excitement of the Homecoming parade and game, we come together Saturday evening to honor the best of the best of our alumni and friends.

Each of our four colleges presents an award to their Distinguished Alumnus and then we also present awards to our young Trailblazer, the Lifetime Achievement award winner,
and Mary Ann Nigbor Volunteer of the Year. 

To learn about past award winners, read a description of each award, or to nominate a recipient, visit the Alumni Awards page.
