Penn College awards recognize graduating Penn College students who have demonstrated outstanding student leadership or have contributed significantly to student life in some way. The recipients of this award are recognized for rising above their peers as a result of their leadership efforts. Penn College awards are given to as many seniors as are believed to be deserving of the award.


The awards ceremony is generally held the Thursday before May graduation in Le Jeune Chef. Recipients receive a plaque and a Penn College lapel pin, and their names are permanently displayed on the wall plaque just outside the Office of Student Engagement.


A link to the application will be posted here in mid spring for faculty, staff, or students who wish to nominate a graduating senior. For more information, contact the Office of Student Engagement.

The leadership skills I obtained at Penn College helped me land a great career and to feel more comfortable in situations where I need to step up and coordinate.
