The Student Life Achievement Awards

STUEYs

The Student Life Achievement Awards, affectionately known as the "STUEYs," is an annual celebration of NSU’s best in Academic Excellence, Student Centered, Integrity, Innovation, Opportunity, Scholarship/Research, Diversity, and Community.

More than a decade ago, it was the vision of Brad Williams, Ed.D., Vice President of Student Affairs and Dean of the College of Undergraduate Studies, to create a celebration to recognize those who further a sense of campus community. Thus, the Student Life Achievement Awards were born.  This event is a celebration of the hundreds of activities designed to enrich the overall student experience of the NSU community.

26th Annual Student Life Achievement Awards: 

Tuesday, April 9, 2024

Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center
