The 2017 Student Life Awards were given out on Wednesday, March 22nd. These awards honour the achievements and contributions of campus and community leaders who have made a lasting difference in the lives of our students and in the strong relationship that is fostered between the campus and greater community.
This year, two of our grad students were recognized for their leadership and contributions to the community.

The Erin Angus Graduate Student Engagement Award was established in honour of the Graduate Students’ Association long-time Office Manager, Erin Angus. The recipient will embody the characteristics of steadfast dedication, humble service, and ever-present support of graduate students for which Erin Angus is known. This award is presented to a graduate student who has made significant contributions to graduate and all student life through his/her engagement within the campus community during the past year.
