Students who have gone above and beyond in the pursuit of academic excellence and integrity will be honored in an awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m. May 3, in the College Union. This is OCCC’s 37th year to hold the ceremony.
A reception will follow, said Student Life Assistant Marcy Roll in an email.
The awards are presented to students from a number of areas at OCCC. Roll said one student in each degree plan will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement while other students will receive the President’s Award for Excellence for outstanding academic work during their time at OCCC.
To be nominated for the awards and certificates, students had to meet a number of criteria.
To be considered for the President’s Award, a student had to have completed 30 hours by January 2013 and had to have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Departments each decided other criteria or values they required award recipients to possess.
