COEHD Outstanding Graduate Nomination Form

The Outstanding Graduate Award is one of the highest honors the University bestows upon a graduating senior in recognition of outstanding academic and extracurricular achievements.  Every spring and fall semester, deans from eight academic colleges each nominate a student as an Outstanding Graduate, based on leadership, scholarship and service. A selection committee of the Alumni Association interviews the candidates and selects one to receive the overall award.

This section should include post high school achievement in the academic arena. May include grade point average and any special scholastic honors received such as dean’s list, academic fraternities or sororities, honor societies or other academically related activities. Please be thorough.
This section addresses those honors and awards other than scholastic. This may include awards from any student/campus organization as well as awards from organizations outside the University setting (Who’s Who, community, civic groups, etc.). Please provide the names of groups from which the awards were granted.
This section focuses on the student’s activities outside the academic arena. List memberships in all campus organizations and describe level of involvement (member, officer, board member, etc.). State, regional and national organizations should be listed here.
List any activities and level of involvement in community activities (either Lafayette or home community). Include activities done outside of the University setting, such as time donated to non-profit agencies (United way, American Heart Association, etc.), involvement in religious activities or participation in political organizations (Young Democrats/Young Republicans).
Provide additional information not listed which may be pertinent to the award.
Let us know what you plan to do after graduation (career goals, relocation, graduate degree, etc.)
