CNS is committed to challenging and supporting our students both in the classroom and through opportunities such as national scholarships and experiential learning. 

The Second Year Excellence Award aims to identify the rising stars of CNS during their second year and provide avenues intended for select students, during their undergraduate career and after.

When and where will the awardees be recognized? 

Tuesday, March 3rd in the WCP (formerlly SAC) Ballroom, 4:00-5:30PM 

What to Expect

There will be brief remarks from college leadership followed by an opportunity for awardees to mingle with staff and faculty and visit a variety of booths with information about experience and leadership opportunities within the college. A booth map will be posted here as the event approaches! 

This isn't a traditional awards ceremony in that there won't be a presentation of the awards or calling of names.  The focus of the event is to connect stellar students to opportunities beyond the classroom.

Can Parents Come?

While we love having parents, this isn't your typical awards ceremony like Honors Day or a scholarship banquet; there won't be any individual recognition so no parents have come in the past. 

How Do I Display My Award?

After the event you'll receive a couple e-mails: one from Dean Vanden Bout with next steps and additional information, and the second from badgr.com with your digital award which you can display on your LinkedIn profile or other social media.  There's also a way to print a certificate if you'd like.

What should I wear to the event?

There's no need to get dressed up for the event - you won't be interviewing or anything so please come dressed however you feel most comfortable.
