Office of Student Engagement Awards

The Office of Student Engagement is proud to present awards to outstanding members of the Ithaca College community. Student awards recognize the individual's contribution to their co-curricular life at the college, their growth in leadership roles, and their creative involvement in campus life. Due recent and unforeseen circumstances, the 2020 Student Life Recognition Ceremony has been cancelled. Instead, the Office of Student Engagement will be taking an online approach in order to acknowledge and praise the hardworking recipients of the awards.

Listed below are the awards our students have received. The award recipients have been selected by committees composed of staff members from across the Student Affairs and Campus Life Division.
