Student Achievement Award Nominations Due Feb. 24
Undergraduate Student Achievement Awards
During the final weeks of the academic year, the University will recognize members of the Class of 2017 who have made an impact during their four years at Fairfield. We are asking for your help in identifying our outstanding seniors.
Please consider submitting a nomination for a student or students from the Class of 2017 for the St. Ignatius Loyola Medal, the William J. Kramer ’60 Humanitarian Award and the Student Achievement Awards.
The St. Ignatius Loyola Medal is given to a senior who has committed her/himself to high academic standards and substantial involvement in community service and/or extracurricular activities. The student should have maximized opportunities for emotional, social and intellectual growth throughout all four years at Fairfield University and exemplified the true spirit of Jesuit education.
The William J. Kramer ’60 Humanitarian Award recognizes a senior who has shown a commitment to volunteerism and service to an external community activity that best exemplifies the Ignatian tradition of being men and women for and with others.
Student Achievement Awards recognize seniors who have shown exceptional dedication to, and enhancement of, a specific Fairfield University program, activity, organization or project. The student’s commitment to this activity must have resulted in the activity attaining a new level of achievement.
To submit a nomination, please visit the online awards site. Nominations will be accepted through Friday, Feb. 24, and a formal recognition ceremony will be held on Wednesday, Apr. 19, at 4 p.m. in the Kelley Center.
