Dean to present inaugural ``Dean's Awards for Excellence``

The School of Arts and Communication will celebrate graduating majors and minors at a Recognition Ceremony and Reception, Friday, May 22, 2015. The event celebrates graduates from across our various disciplines Art & Design, Communication & Theatre, and Music.

This year we are excited to present the inaugural Dean’s Awards for Excellence, which will be awarded to between 5 and 10 extraordinary graduating students. These award winners will not be previously identified. The SOAC Recognition Ceremony is the only occasion to hear the announcement of award recipients.

Here's a few highlights of the day:

  • Dean Cameron Bennett gives an address and all area Chairs offer remarks
  • All graduating SOAC majors are brought on stage, by department, to be recognized
  • All majors are corded (a tri-colored cord is placed around everyone’s neck)
  • All majors are pinned (a small, round pin with the SOAC rune is given to each student)
  • All minors are recognized
  • The Dean’s Awards for Excellence are announced
  • Awards are presented by select departments
  • Light refreshments are provided at a post-ceremony reception, and students are encouraged to spend time connecting with friends, family and faculty.
