Award to be given to UA community

By Courtney Powell, Arts & Life Writer

The Life Awards are held annually to honor faculty, students, and student organizations that embody the LIFE values: legacy, integrity, fellowship, and excellence.

There are 28 individual awards that anyone on campus can apply for. The large number of awards given is to ensure diversity—ensure that there is an award for everyone.

Along with the individual awards, there are five different team and organization awards that campus organizations are eligible to apply for. The awards for organizations and teams range from a club sport achievement award to a diversity award. There is also an Exceptional Civic Engagement Award for individuals and organizations.

Many people apply for multiple LIFE Awards. Abbey Gauger, an alumnus of Kappa Kappa Gamma, won Top Ten Senior and Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges at the 2014 LIFE Awards. The awards offer a great place to showcase many achievements and be recognized for them.

Applications can be filled out on OrgSync and must be submitted by Friday, March 6 at 5 p.m. The application asks for basic information. There is a different criterion for each application depending on the award.

Students can nominate a fellow student for a LIFE Award if they feel the student embodies the values that the LIFE Awards contain. This can be done by completing the form on OrgSync. They ask that everyone fill out the application along with a recommendation. If one has any questions one can contact the Office of Student Life by email at [email protected] or by calling ext. 4636.
