NMSU Alumni Association - Outstanding Senior
(The ACES Deans office will request nominations after we receive forms from the alumni office with deadlines each semester)
NMSU Alumni OfficeAs the New Mexico State University Alumni Association’s highest honor for a student, the Outstanding Graduate Award honors a graduating student from each academic college and Office of International and Border Programs, as well as a master’s student and a doctoral student from the Graduate School. All honorees are named Outstanding Graduates by the deans or leaders of their respective colleges and programs, and then they are honored during a luncheon hosted by the NMSU Alumni Association. This is a very special honor that carries with it the knowledge that, as outstanding graduates, the recipients were not only marked by achieving high academic standards, but also by a high level of involvement in the community. These outstanding individuals are leaders, as well as good students. This award is presented every semester the Friday before commencement to those outstanding graduates who have demonstrated a tremendous focus on academics; active participation in activities that embrace their leadership skills; and an ability to conceptualize and communicate needed practices for success in their education and personal lives.
All award nominations for student awards, besides Alumni Outstanding Graduate, are due March 30 for Spring semester and October 30 for Fall semester.
