Nineteen individuals and five groups will be honored at the College’s annual Student Life Awards dinner on Friday, April 21.
The formal dinner is hosted by Dean of Students Matthew Burns and begins at 4:30 p.m. in the ballroom of Frederick Douglass Commons.
The awards, also known as “the Rockys,” are divided into Individual Leadership Awards and Student Organization and Programming Awards. Students are nominated by faculty, staff, and peers. This year, almost 300 students were nominated.
All of the winners will receive engraved glass trophies and certificates at Friday’s dinner. Watch the ceremony as it happens at www.rochester.edu/news/live.
