This annual event spotlights our students’ dedication and participation in areas of the arts, sports, community service, campus vibrancy and leadership.

The air was thick with anticipation, happiness and pride as students celebrated and congratulated one another. More than the awards, we are immensely proud of our students for engaging in such meaningful endeavours beyond the realms of academia.
