The nominations for the 22nd Annual Student Life Achievement Awards, more affectionately known as the STUEY’s, are officially open for voting. Every current member of NSU’s community, including students, faculty and staff have the option to nominate someone or student group for the varying awards being presented this year.
Christina A. Rajkumar-Castillo, associate director of Campus Life & Student Engagement describes the event as “a celebration of our students, staff, our student organizations on campus and all the great things they do… it’s basically our chance to highlight and recognize those students, faculty, and staff members who have exemplified NSU’s core values.” Rajkumar-Castillo further added “it is a spectacular [and] traditional event here at NSU. It NSU’s version of the Oscars. It is definitely something I would encourage all students, faculty and staff members to come out to because it is definitely a treat.”
The awards this year are the traditional favorites from prior years including: Student of the Year, Executive of the Year, Administrator of the Year, Staff Person of the Year, Student Government of the Year, Graduate Organization of the Year, Undergraduate Organization of the Year, Athletic Team of the Year, Corporate Partner of the Year, Professor of the Year, Co-Curricular Advisor of the Year, Alumnus of the Year and Regional Campuses Student of the Year.
Anyone interested in nominating a group or individual should go onto their SharkHub page and under the forms tab find the application for voting. Voting for nominations are open until Jan. 13 at 5 p.m and most categories will have a total of five finalists.
All students, staff and faculty are welcome to attend the STUEY’s on April 14, and anyone interested in attending can get their free event ticket after Mar. 30 in the Office of Campus Life and Student Engagement in the University Center. The STUEY’s will be held in the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center with a pre-reception starting at 5 p.m. in the atrium of Carl DeSantis building.
