Annual Alumni Dinner and Awards Ceremony


Annual Alumni Dinner and Awards Ceremony – Friday, October 21, 2016
Please join us for one of the College’s longest standing traditions, the annual Alumni Awards celebration which will be held at the beginning of Fall Fest Weekend. We will honor our outstanding alumni for their volunteerism, leadership and achievements. On this evening, the Distinguished Alumni Award, the Alumni Service Award and the induction into the College’s Athletic Hall of Fame will be awarded. We will also take the opportunity at this celebratory event to honor and recognize retiring members of the College’s Alumni Association Council and past inductees into the Hall of Fame, along with the recipients of the Muhammed Ali Award, the Wingate Award, and the Alumni Award, each of which recognizes student contributions to our community as these students become alumni. These outstanding individuals have demonstrated their Mustang Pride in a variety of ways both on and off campus.
