The CAS Outstanding Student Award
The purpose of the award is to recognize one outstanding senior student who is majoring in a CAS discipline. The award will be presented at the CAS Student Recognition Ceremony held each spring semester. The primary criterion for defining an outstanding student is exceptional intellectual or creative achievement both inside and outside the classroom, as judged by CAS faculty. Secondary criteria are involvement in extracurricular activities on campus and involvement in service activities on or off campus.
To qualify for nomination, the student should be a senior CAS major, with a minimum 3.5 GPA, and should be able to demonstrate the qualifications mentioned above. Students who graduated in December of the academic year in which the award is given or students who are planning to graduate in May or August of that same academic year are eligible for the award.
