Departmental Awards



Each year LLC faculty nominate outstanding students for the following awards for academic excellence in our department.  The LLC Executive Committee then carefully considers the nominations and makes the final selections.  

Since May 2003, 40 LLC students have received merit awards.  The department gratefully acknowledges the generous contributions from alumni and friends of LLC who have made these awards possible.
