Loras Students Earn Accolades for Their Achievements

On March 24, the Loras community honored some of its outstanding students for their accomplishments over the past academic year. Traditionally held on the same day as the Loras Legacy Symposium, this year’s student awards and recognition convocation was hosted separately due to the restictions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Throughout the event, different divisions throughout the campus recognized students with awards and scholarships, including the academic dean’s top 20, honors degrees and senior academic achievement.
