Volunteer Group Awards
Programs/events in this category are typically of a social nature and provide alumni an outlet to gather together to interact with each other in a relaxed/fun environment.
In addition to raising money for scholarships, our affiliate groups also raise money to support other initiatives, including THON, community organizations, national charities, and other University programs. This award is designed to recognize exceptional fundraising efforts outside of scholarships.
